WA 87 "Reflecting a wealth of diverse parcels literally from top to bottom in this commune, Liger-Belair’s 2008 Vosne-Romanee combines leathery, animal scents with aromas of strawberry and red raspberry, as well as a hint of decadent lily perfume. The delicacy of touch and seeming memory of the fruit’s malic acid in the form of tartness is slightly awkwardly juxtaposed with a faintly lactic note. There is certainly good length here, and a refined texture, with no sense of dominant new wood such as has affected this cuvee in past vintages. (Beginning in 2009, 350-liter barrels will be employed for most of the village wines in preference to classic 225-liter barriques.) But I would hope this becomes more harmonious short term, and would meantime make plans to drink it within the next 3-5 years. (DS)" (06/2010)
