The 2009 La Romanee is one of the “pinnacle wines” of Liger Belair. Smaller production size than Romanee Conti from DRC and only 240 magnums were made of this crown jewel. The professional and peer reviews are exceptional (see below) and have people calling this “extraterrestrial juice” and “some of the most personal, intimate wine being made in Burgundy”.
As pictured, these magnums are gorgeous and available to you at the lowest price in the world.
When one bottle of DRC Romanee Conti starts at around $19,000 a bottle, this is an exceptional value given the quality is very similar to its close neighbor. 2 out of 4 peer reviews on cellar tracker were rated 100 points and the other two were rated 99 points. When it comes to Cellar Tracker, people tend to not hold back their honest opinions of the wine so with this receiving such high praise, we are confident this will be a memorable experience for you.
“Initially a mild touch of reduction mutes the nose but some aggressive swirling quickly releases a kaleidoscopically broad range of spice nuances that add real breadth to the ultra-elegant, ripe and quite pure aromas of red pinot, plum and cassis that precede the rich, full and silky medium-bodied flavors that are discreet yet powerful and superbly persistent. This is an exceptionally stylish and classy wine that is supported by ultra-fine tannins and the hallmark finishing austerity. While the '09 La Romanée is essentially a wine of finesse it doesn't mean that it isn't built to age because it more assuredly is, indeed it will require at least 20 years to arrive at its peak.” – Burghound, 97
“The 2009 La Romanee is stunningly beautiful. It boasts the most sensual, sleek tannins imaginable. Sweet cherries in liqueur, roses, spices and licorice are woven together in a fabric of indescribable elegance. Words are superfluous in describing this eternal, timeless beauty. Frankly, it was hard to spit the 2009. Louis-Michel Liger-Belair’s 2009s have turned out just as great as I thought they would. These are some of the most personal, intimate wines being made in Burgundy. There really is nothing else that even closely resembles the house style.– Robert Parker, 97
