- Tasting Notes
There is just enough wood lurking in the background of the brooding yet very fresh black cherry, plum and Asian-style tea-inflected aromas to mention. The velvety, delicious and beautifully detailed medium-bodied flavors possess a polished mouthfeel, all wrapped in a stony finish where a touch of youthful austerity arises. Like several wines in the range, this beautiful effort is an exercise in finesse and punch.

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaumonts bursts from the glass with a dramatic bouquet of ripe cherries, plums, smoked duck and burning embers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and ample with a gourmand, fleshy profile and succulent balancing acids. While it isn’t as serious as the Suchots and Malconsorts, it will be more expressive in the near term.

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaumonts 1er Cru has a succinct, quite understated bouquet of red cherry and wild strawberry that opens up and welcomes you in after a minute’s aeration. There is fine transparency here. The palate is very sappy with a potent marine influence (hints of brine and kelp), fresh and quite deep toward the persistent, slightly peppery finish. Excellent, though I am charmed more by the Malconsorts at this prenatal stage.
