Good medium red. Sexy, scented aromas and flavors of raspberry, Oriental spices and orange peel. Pure, silky, spicy and dry; wonderfully spherical wine with ineffable high notes of flowers and iodiney minerality. Finishes with utterly suave tannins and subtle building length and lingering perfume. This wine leaves the salivary glands quivering.

Slightly herbal, with currant and cranberry flavors, this red is lean and sinewy, displaying a hint of sweetness at the core. Spice, licorice, mint and dusty tannins round out the finish. Best from 2017 through 2033. 30 cases imported.

The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts is striking in its beauty. Dark plums, cherries, menthol, flowers and licorice literally explode from the glass as the wine shows off its pedigree and sheer class. Rich, powerful and sensual, the 2010 Beaux Monts is a dazzling, complete wine that will be nearly impossible to resist in its youth, even if it needs considerable bottle age to be at its best. Sweet floral notes and cool mineral notes appear to give brightness to the radiant, expansive finish. This is a stunning wine from Etienne and Marielle Grivot. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035.
