"The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts has a very pure, quite generous and maybe more expressive bouquet compared to the Aux Brûlées at the moment with copious black cherries, raspberry coulis and crushed flower aromas. The palate has superb energy and precision, extremely detailed with layers of mineral-soaked red and black fruit commingling on the sustained finish that fans out with style and panache. God...I love this. One of Etienne's best in 2016." (NM) (12/2017) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"An elegant and overtly spicy nose speaks of cassis, plum and black cherry as well as a background touch of wood. There is outstanding richness to the round, lavishly generous yet sophisticated middle weight plus flavors that possess first-rate volume on the dusty, balanced and utterly delicious finish that is deceptively powerful. This built-to-age effort is marvelous and a textbook example of a fine Suchots. Note that in contrast to many of the prior wines, this should drink reasonably well in its youth if that's your preference." Burghound 92-95 points

"Bright red ruby. Sexy, expressive scents of dark raspberry, flowers, cocoa powder and brown spices; a real essence of Suchots. Boasts lovely thickness and sweetness leavened by saline minerality and framed by strong supporting acidity. Very concentrated, very ripe, almost chocolatey wine with powerful tannic support for extended aging. At once solid and seamless, this beauty finishes with serious spreading tannins and terrific verve." Vinous 92-95points
