If chroniclers are correct, the Romanée vineyards date back to the Roman era, which is no doubt where its name originates from. Its nickname ¿Perle du Mileu¿ (Pearl in the centre) is due to its geographical location in the heart of the Vosne Romanée Grand Crus. This is the smallest ¿Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée¿, not only of the Côte de Nuits, but also of the whole of France: its surface area is only 85 acres, which barely produces 4,000 bottles a year. Like Romanée-Conti, which is just below this ¿climat¿, Romanée has perfect conditions for producing great wine: silty-clayey soil mixed with a small amount of crumbly limestone, which gives body and elegance, and a fairly steep slope which provides good drainage. This domain belongs to the General Liger-Belair, owner of the Château de Vosne Romonée. For a long time the domain managed by Mr Forey, a winemaker from Vosne Romanée, and the Maison Bouchard Père & Fils was responsible for maturing the wine and marketing it from 1976 to 2002.
The General's son, Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, engineer in agriculture and oenology, created his domain in 2000 by getting back the 1.5 hectares of vines situated on the Vosne-Romanée La Colombière, Clos du Château, and premier Cru Les Chaumes appellations. In 2002 he also got back the Grand Cru La Romanée and the Vosne-Romanée premier cru Aux Reignots. Over the years he expanded the property by renting a few other good parcels. Today the domain, run by Louis-Michel Liger-Belair covers nearly nine hectares of vines situated on the communes of Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Flagey-Echezeaux.
A legend wine, Romanée unveils all its raciness after a few years in the cellar, which produces an explosion of dark fruits and spices which develop into smoky notes and undergrowth. Ample, silky and fresh on the mouth, this complex Grand Cru has a remarkably long, lingering finish.*The above information describes the wine and is not vintage specific.
