The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru has a very attractive, expressive bouquet of quite precocious macerated red cherries, kirsch, orange sorbet and hints of crème de cassis, a little showy but irresistible. The silky-smooth palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, more understated than the aromatics, and the finish is very cohesive and charming. Maybe it would benefit from more length, but it feels very natural and refined at the moment.
91-93 points, Neal Martin, Vinous.
Renowned for producing some of the finest and most expensive wines in the world, it is one of the jewels in the Côte de Nuits’ crown and boasts the biggest concentration of top vineyards in the entire Côte d’Or with some of the world’s finest producers - not only with talent, but pioneers of innovation.
The wines are intense and powerful with finesse and elegance. Although Vosne-Romanée’s Grand Cru wines of La Tache, La Romanée and Richebourg are a wine aficionado’s household names (and dreams), the commune’s Premier Cru wines are magnificent and with a well deserved reputation.
