Reviews 90-92 points Wine Advocate "The 2014 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Clos des Grandes Vignes has a fragrant, lightly honeyed nose that is nicely defined, perhaps a little richer than other vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with that light honeyed note coming through, the 22% new oak nealty integrated towards the refined finish. Very fine. (NM)" 91 points Vinous "Dark red-ruby. Musky, very ripe, soil-driven scents of black raspberry, black cherry and menthol. Silky and fine-grained yet backward today owing to its medicinal reserve. This wine is hiding its sweetness in the early going but it displays lovely phenolic ripeness, not to mention good energy. (ST)" 17.5 points Jancis Robinson "Mid purplish crimson. Quite intense nose. Some spice. Really fruity and edgy. Solid – big delivery. Quite a bit of alcohol. Muscular. Long and neat. (JR)" 91 points Burghound "A restrained nose displays pretty and cool red currant, earth and soft spice nuances. There is a lovely sense of underlying tension to the supple, round and fleshy medium-bodied flavors that possess a relatively refined mouth feel thanks to the fine-grained tannins. I like the subtle complexity on the delicious, balanced and attractively persistent if tautly muscular finish. (AM)" 93 points John Gilman "The Clos des Grandes Vignes Monopole is a fine new addition to the lineup here, and the 2014 is really a lovely and very classy young bottle of Nuits St. Georges. The bouquet offers up a complex melange of black raspberries, sweet dark berries, gamebirds, lovely spice tones, dark soil and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with lovely transparency, a sappy core of black fruit, fine-grained tannins and a long, focused and tangy finish. (JG)"

About Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair is one of Burgundy’s greatest comeback stories. A general from Napoleon’s army, Louis Liger-Belair, purchased the stately Château de Vosne-Romanée Estate in 1815 with some sixty hectares of the region’s top parcels, including the celebrated grand cru monopole, La Romanée, still one of the world’s finest vineyards. In 1933, when an inheritance dilemma forced the family to auction off the property, two of the General’s descendants bought back a few remaining parcels, a mere fraction of the Estate’s former glory.

The tables turned in 2000, when young Louis-Michel Liger-Belair took charge of the aging family Domaine. Having converted the vineyards to biodynamic methods, he farms nearly nine hectares (including La Romanée) with a horse-drawn plow. He destems, blends the free run and pressed juices, and lets the lees to settle to avoid racking. Louis-Michel uses three different barrel types from three different forests, and bottles by gravity, free of fining and filtration. In the words of Jancis Robinson, “[they] positively vibrate with a seriousness of intent.”
