Les Chaumes is surprisingly crisp and energetic in the 2012 vintage – no doubt helped by the 18% whole cluster. The bouquet offer rich confit fruit of red berries – notes of raspberries, forest strawberries drizzled with discrete Vosne spices. On the palate quite weigthy fruit – it’s rich and almost creamy with a beautiful core of red fruit – supported by a lovely acidity. The minerality is there – but not as forward and crisp as in Clos du Chateau – but the expression of fruit is very charming. A lovely rich and pure Chaumes – perhaps the best Chaumes from Liger-Belair so far.

I first tasted the 2016s in June 2017, and while most of the wines showed well on that occasion, the extra six months of elevage have defined, detailed and clarified the picture of the wines. No doubt Louis-Michel Liger-Belair have done very well ...
- More tastings of the 2016s – exiting and delightful A very busy week with plenty of tastings – covering a large part of Burgundy. From Morey to Santenay in just the last days – meeting a lot of nice people making wines with love and talent. I’m always surprised how many new and fine estates one can find just scratching the surface. Domaine du Comte ...
- Visit Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair – tasting of the 2016s Back to where it all began – when Winehog was conceived in July 2011 – at a tasting of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. Back then it was the 2010 vintage now its the 2016 edition – how time flies! While the 2010 vintage still is my favourite vintage from this estate – I do think the ...
