The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts was showing some reduction on the nose, although there is clearly plenty of ripe red cherry and cranberry fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a silver bead of acidity. This comes across as being very harmonious with good backbone; saline in the mouth with a persistent, peppery aftertaste that lasts for over a minute. This is simply a Beaux Monts from the top-drawer.(NM)
An overtly floral and spicy nose is also quite restrained if exceptionally pretty with its cool array of spice, Asian-style tea and red and blue pinot fruit scents. There is terrific vibrancy to the much more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that also culminate in a linear and delineated finish though without the leanness of the Gruenchers. This will need a few years to flesh out but the underlying material appears to be present such that it will very likely occur.
(racked): Bright, dark red. Raspberry and smoky minerality complicated by musky soil tones on the nose. Ripe and dense but light on its feet; not a particularly fleshy or viscous version of Beaux Monts but sappy, saline and highly concentrated, conveying a strong impression of terroir. Finishes firmly tannic and very long.(ST)
The 2015 Dujac Beaumonts is a very black fruity wine that perfectly captures the essence of this vineyard. The bouquet delivers scents of black plums, sweet dark berries, bitter chocolate, dark soil tones, a bit of roasted gamebird and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied, pure and shows a nice touch of sappiness to its black fruit core, with fine soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a long, nascently complex and tangy finish. This is very 1993-like in profile, but the Seysses family also makes far more refined Beaumonts today than was the case back in that era. A fine, fine bottle in the making. 2025-2065.
