Cellar/Tasting Notes
The Les Beaux Monts is a rich, full wine with exquisite scents of red fruits and exotic spices. No wonder it is one of the most famous Vosne premier crus. Its velvety roundness makes it charming early on but its natural balance will also ensure good cellaring potential.

Etienne Grivot states: "As to the style of the 2011 vintage, it didn't produce particularly big wines but they are suave and seductive plus they display their respective terroirs quite clear. This isn't always the case with vintages that are very seductive because the aromas are generally a bit too ripe for the terroir to come through without distortion. The other aspect that I really like about them is that they are very saline in character, which I believe contributes greatly to how refreshing they are to drink. In fact, even though they should age very well, the wines can already be enjoyed for their freshness and energy."
Burghound (BH): 91-93
'This and the Suchots are often Grivot's best Vosne 1ers and so it is again in 2011. There is a background touch of wood setting off the cool and admirably pure red and black pinot fruit that is bursting with an array of spices and wet stone. The minerality is very much a defining element of the firm, serious and restrained medium weight flavors that possess a silky mid-palate yet an explosively long, balanced and elegant finish. This is impressive and well worth a look."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92
"Good bright, full red. More precise and perfumed on the nose than the village Vosne, with red berry and spice aromas complemented but not overshadowed by pepper. Tactile, juicy and perhaps deceptively open-knit, showing lovely peppery, floral lift to the sweet red berry flavors. The slowly mounting, perfumed finish features ripe tannins, palate-dusting fruits and spices and piquant mineral lift."
