Domaine Daniel Rion et Fils, Vosne-Romanée Les Beaux Monts 1er Cru 1988

D. Rion Vosne Beaux Monts 1988 #1

Milky garnet, pale rim.  Not as concentrated as many of his Vosne neighbors: this is sylphlike if downright laconic.  Yet there is true substance here: aérienne in its demeanor, origami-like in its detail, tiny red berries from lush, forested green shade. Tomato-water and dust at the end.  All serenity now, all ’88 structural turbulence in complete resolution; a Beaux Monts for the shoegazers among us.  Too evanescent for keeping; like tears in the rain, this D. Rion.
