Louis Jadot "Beaux Monts" Vosne-Romanee Premier Cru 2014
92-94 Points Wine Advocate
The 2014 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru les Beaux Monts has a clean and precise bouquet, tightly wound at first, perhaps aromatics with a leash on it, holding it back for now. The palate is well balanced with grippy red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and a touch of sage. It gently builds towards quite a dense finish that is reminiscent of a Malconsorts. Very fine indeed.
91-93 Points Burghound
*Outstanding* Reduction is present here as well but it's not so strong as to completely mask the spice and gentle wood nuances. In contrast to the funk there is good freshness and vibrancy to the strikingly well-detailed and much more intensely mineral-driven flavors that culminate in a refined, pure and ever-so-slightly austere finale. This is a classic example of Beaux Monts that should amply reward 10 to 12 years of cellaring.
