Jadot’s 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts leads with an impressive and intriguing meld of dark fresh berries, brown spices, forest floor, fresh ginger, and black pepper, with musk and game adding distinctively animal complexity. This formidable exemplar of its great site was still under the influence of residual CO2 from its very late malo when I last tasted it, so greater textural allure will probably have been gained even short-term in what is already an impressively concentrated and complex as well as brightly, penetratingly persistent Pinot. I suspect this has the makings for at least 15 years of fascination from bottle. (DS)
A gentle hint of wood allows the elegant, pure and airy plum and black cherry nose to shine as it does not continue onto the spice and mineral-driven middle weight flavors that possess plenty of verve and fine length on the linear, focused and moderately austere finish. If this understated effort can add depth over the next 6 to 8 years, it could surprise to the upside.
The bouquet is deep and complex, as it delivers a fine mélange of black cherries, raspberries, a touch of Echézeaux-like bonfire, game, soil tones and a touch of oak spice in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and nicely balanced, with solid mid-palate depth, tangy acids and moderate tannins on the focused finish. Good juice that should drink well after four or five years of bottle age. (Drink between 2014-2035)
The 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts is a delicate wine with attractive, silky fruit and lovely overall balance. It offers good balance, but comes across as an early-drinker. (AG)
