The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Vosne-Romanee Les Beauxmonts reveals a complex nose of violets, roses, and bing cherries. This medium to full-bodied wine has remarkable depth of dark cherries, blackberries, and cassis-like fruit that lasts throughout the long, harmonious finish. It reveals copious quantities of ripe, supple tannin. It is a velvety-textured, extroverted, elegant, and boisterous wine for drinking between 2005 and 2015.
