Beaune du Château Blanc 2017

January 2019

89-90 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Beaune du Château Blanc 1er Cru comes from 10 hectares over five different Premier Crus. It has a pretty apricot blossom and white peach bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The fresh palate is a little oaky on the entry – just 15% though, and that will be absorbed. The well-defined, commercially savvy finish shows a touch of brioche on the aftertaste. –NM

Peaches on the nose with an edge of spiced toffee. The palate has a very plush and fleshy feel with plenty of fruit delivered into the finish.

Subtle, musky aromas of pear, spices and flowers. Silky and suave, conveying a subtle sweetness leavened by lovely citrus lift and floral energy. This is smooth and approachable today: will it close down in the bottle and go through a dumb phase?

While more discreet I still wouldn’t describe the oak regimen as subtle on the notably ripe dark berry fruit, earth and sandalwood scents. There is excellent volume to the medium weight flavors that possess admirable mid-palate concentration that helps to buffer the moderately firm tannic spine. This isn’t especially elegant but in contrast to a number of wines in the range that are clearly in need of bottle age this should be accessible earlier.
