Domaine du Comte LIGER-BELAIR (Vosne-Romanée) -- 2015 Tasted from Barrel

Louis-Michel Liger-Belair said that he harvested between 5 and 10 September in 2015. There had been some oïdium on the hillside vineyards, and he treated it with salt water. He thinks the main effect of the rain at harvest was on the morale, not the wines.

The estate practices biodynamic cultivation.

As usual, superb wines across the board here. (Continue reading here.)
