The Story

La Colombière is a lieu-dit located in the commune of Vosne-Romanée in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or. The vineyard lies just east of that portion of the village which abuts Grand Cru vineyard Romanée St-VivantLa Colombière itself lies halfway between the RN74 and the village. The soil of  La Colombière is similar to the clay and limestone of other village-level vineyards east of the town, such as the Clos du Château, but is significantly less rocky.

Major owners of La Colombière include Domaine du Comte-Liger-Belair, which exploits a .78-hectare parcel just to the east of the Domaine’s monopole, Clos du Château. The southeast-facing parcel is planted with vines averaging 60-80 years. Louis-Michel Liger-Belair uses 350-liter barrels for élevage of his La Colombière.

Written Notes

The wine showed beautifully at this stage. In fact I preferred it to Vosne-Romanee, Clos du Chateau, Monopole. As with all wines of Louis Michel quantities are tiny and strictly allocated so any bottle of Louis Michel is always a treat to drink.
