Tasting Notes

The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts has a clean and pure bouquet with ample ripe red cherry, cassis and iodine scents, underneath which lies fine mineralité, even if it will take 4-5 years to really surface. The palate is ripe and poised on the entry. There is a silver thread of acidity here that is neatly interwoven throughout this premier cru, however, it is the precision and the finesse of the tannin that really elevates this wine. It is a sophisticated Les Beaux Monts that could end up offering two decades of pleasure. This is excellent. Neal Martin
