Vosne Les Beauxmonts, Domaine Dujac 2016
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. Drink: 2031+

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts has a perfumed bouquet with cold limestone scents that infuse the Morello cherry and crushed strawberry, tightly wound and nicely focused, understated compared to others that I have encountered from this vineyard. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, fresh and focused with the volume one expects from the premier cru delivered on the final third. This is brimming with great potential even if it might be predestined to fall under the shadow of the outstanding Malconsorts. 2021 - 2045
