Vinous – 91
The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru has a superb bouquet, easily the best of the three Premier Crus Vosnes that I tasted from Jadot, exuding mineralité on the well-defined, expressive bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe red berry fruit on the entry, joined by hints of marmalade and fig jam. It just loses some of its initial complexity toward the final half, which is such a shame after the superb aromatics. Hopefully that will be addressed during the remainder of its élevage.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2032
