Smoky black tea beef bouillon raw venison biter cherry pit and ripe blackberry make for a striking nose to Liger-Belair's 2009 Nuits-St.-Georges Les St.-Georges. Firm in feel and with its dense meat and bitter-edged black fruit underlain by a sensation of crushed stone this manages to avoid austerity - and more remarkably opacity - thanks to its primary juicy freshness; sweet high-toned inner-mouth esters suggestive of distilled fruits; and to a wealth of mineral nuances (marine crustacean peaty) that manage to shine through in a penetrating and resplendent finish. I would not plan to revisit it for a couple of years and expect it will be worth following for at least 8-10.

($112) An attractive mix of sweet fruit oak spice and dense ripe tannins set the stage for blackberry bilberry vanilla and fruitcake flavors. The tannins are firm but this is beautifully balanced and very long and spicy...

The tannins are firm but this is beautifully balanced and very long and spicy. Best from 2010 through 2022. 240 cases imported.

($115) Good bright medium red. Sexy high-toned aromas of small wild red fruits minerals game and faded rose. Much sweeter and broader in the mouth today than the Reas which is hard by comparison. Impressively deep dense... ($115) Good bright medium red. Sexy high-toned aromas of small wild red fruits minerals game and faded rose. Much sweeter and broader in the mouth today than the Reas which is hard by comparison. Impressively deep dense wine with a long ripe finish featuring lingering notes of red fruits spices and mocha.

An extremely subtle and at this very early juncture relatively inexpressive nose of ripe black pinot fruit and violet notes that are in keeping with the supple flavors that are perhaps not quite as concentrated as one... An extremely subtle and at this very early juncture relatively inexpressive nose of ripe black pinot fruit and violet notes that are in keeping with the supple flavors that are perhaps not quite as concentrated as one might prefer but this is undeniably classy and delivers fine finishing punch energy and backend persistence on the explosive finish. While not a big wine it's refined pure and altogether lovely. Outstanding.
