From the collection of Paul Vickers, one of Calgary’s most respected and successful hospitality entrepreneurs. Purchased on release and perfectly cellared since acquisition.

The wine in this lot has a score of 92 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -Tasted at the La Romanée vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 1995 La Romanée Grand Cru, here labeled under Comte Liger-Belair, is clearly more mature in color than the 1993 or 1996 vintages that were served either side. However, I appreciate the purity on the nose here, unadulterated Pinot Noir. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, juicy tannin- blood orange and mandarin, a touch of orange zest filtering through on the elegant finish. This is a La Romanée that might lack the intellectual weight, but just wants to give pleasure.
