Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 2015 Vosne Romanee 1er Cru les Beaumonts was matured in 30% new oak. I found this to be the most reticent of Hudelot-Noellat's 2015s, the nose backward despite coaxing, and I found that the palate has not yet developed the mineralite that I think it will eventually muster. There is plenty of natural freshness and an attractive dash of black pepper on the finish, but it just needs a little more personality to come through, so that it can rank alongside the Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots and Malconsorts, both demonstrating more potential from barrel at this point.Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
