"Tasted blind, Louis-Michel Liger-Belair's 2015 La Romanée Grand Cru is simply extraordinary, dominating a flight of great grands crus. The wine wafts from the glass with an extraordinarily complex bouquet in which notes of cherries, cassis and orange rind mingle with fragrant aromas of rose petal and Asian spices, complemented by deeper, more savory bass notes of grilled squab, espresso roast and smoked duck. On the palate, it's full-bodied, multidimensional and complete, with amazing depth and dimension, juicy acids balancing a deep and concentrated core of fruit, and concluding with a long, reverberative finish. This is a powerful, even dramatic La Romanée that ranks as one of the pinnacles of this magical vintage." William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

"Here too there is an initial touch of reduction that is rapidly replaced by ripe and pretty if notably reserved and intensely floral and spice-suffused aromas of dark berry liqueur. As good as the Echézeaux is, and it's first-rate, it's immediately evident that this is just at another level with its sleek, refined and powerful yet restrained medium-bodied flavors that exude evident minerality on the intense, palate coating and massively long finish that is incredibly refined and graceful. In sum, the 2015 La Romanée is a genuine 'wow' wine that is very much built-to-age and is going to need it. Brilliant." Burghound
