Lot #164. Domaine Leroy Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts 1990

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 98 RP.
"Lalou Bize-Leroy's Vosne-Romanée Les Brûlées and Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts are both sensational wines, but they could not be more different. The Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts is a more subtle, more classic example of a top premier cru Vosne-Romanée. It does not soar from the glass with the exotic, smoky, roasted character of the Les Brûlées, but it does offer authoritative and persistent aromas of black fruits, herbs, underbrush, and sweet oak. While it displays exceptional concentration of flavor in the mouth, it is supported by higher levels of tannin and is a more structured, denser, richer wine than the Les Brûlées. Since the tannins are more noticeable, it should be cellared for 7-8 years, and should last for 30 or more. This profound wine is one of the superstars of the vintage." Wine Advocate #83, Oct 1992
Provenance: The Yuzu Cellar
