The 2008 Vosne Romanee Les Colombieres evinces dark berries, forest floor, and Lapsang tea; comes to the palate seamlessly-structured, subtly creamy, and tenderly-fruited, with smoky aura and mouth-watering saline streak; and finishes saliva-inducing and invigorating, with its hint of berry-tartness well-integrated and effectively-deployed. This contrasts distinctly with the collection’s generic bottling, and ought to be worth following for at least 6-8 years, although I see little reason to resist it now. Louis-Michel Liger-Belair’s 2008 collection strikes me as hands-down his best so far, and he is inclined to agree. But the quality of his 2007s also bespeaks increasing mastery of technique; focusing of his aesthetic (and a more focused resultant style); and certainly too, greater familiarity with his vineyards, a substantial portion of which (as explained in issue 186) was only acquired in 2006. (Liger-Belair would also put emphasis on the accumulated effect of a biodynamic regimen, including deep horse-plowing for the estate’s top acreage.) Malos were not inordinately late in this relatively warm cellar, and bottling of the 2008s took place between mid-January and late March, three weeks after which I tasted the wines. “The big deal,” opines Liger-Belair, “was – a bit of rot, of course, but – the major problem was rose, pink grapes. So my primary goal was to be at the beginning of the sorting table to pick out bunches” that harbored some of those berries, an imperfection that evidently could easily be missed. Liger-Belair continues to experiment with the inclusion of stems and whole clusters, although he limited this vendange entier approach in both the 2007 and 2008 vintages, lest any greenness intrude. Finished alcohols on the 2008s range from the low 12’s to low 13’s with only a minor amount of chaptalization performed on certain cuvees.

Robert Parker 93/100

The 2009 Vosne-Romanee La Colombiere is quite a bit fleshier than the 2010. The floral notes that are typical of this site are given a little extra volume and depth in 2009. Dark cherries, menthol and licorice are some of the nuances that flesh out on the generous, inviting finish. This is an especially round, inviting Burgundy with plenty of 2009 appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. 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.
