Tasted at the La Romanée vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 2007 La Romanée Grand Cru is in keeping with the vintage, very open for business with plush strawberries, red cherries and rose petals. It is not the most complex aromatics that Louis-Michel has overseen but it is utterly charming. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, very pure red cherry and cranberry fruit, a dash of orange sorbet and plenty of mineral notes on the tensile finish. I would actually broach this now to revel in its youth and joie-de-vivre but it clearly has the substance to last two decades. I'll leave it to you. Tasted June 2015.
