Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 93 (2019 Jan.)

A spicy and admirably pure nose mixes notes of red and blue pinot fruit with those of Asian-style tea, dried orange peel and a wide array of floral elements. The sleek, intense and beautifully vibrant medium weight flavors exhibit plenty of minerality on the balanced and impressively persistent if notably austere finish. This lovely effort is very Vosne and the dense but fine supporting tannins are quite sophisticated.

Vinous - Score: 93 (2019 Mar.)

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru has a very refined bouquet with raspberry, wild strawberry, crushed stone and just a slight metallic scent that dissipates with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a fine bead of acidity, a little more backward than its fellow 2016s at the moment, perhaps mimicking the structure of the Malconsorts! Give this Premier Cru three or four years in bottle at least as it certainly needs time to coalesce. Tasted at Flint Wines Domaine Dujac tasting in London.
