Tasting Notes

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts has a perfumed bouquet with cold limestone scents that infuse the Morello cherry and crushed strawberry, tightly wound and nicely focused, understated compared to others that I have encountered from this vineyard. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, fresh and focused with the volume one expects from the premier cru delivered on the final third. This is brimming with great potential even if it might be predestined to fall under the shadow of the outstanding Malconsorts. Neal Martin
