92 points Burghound: "The 2011 Beaumonts from Bruno Clavelier is another outstanding example of the vintage, offering up a very complex and soil-driven personality on both the nose and palate. The very fine and elegant nose certainly shows the vineyard’s proximity to Echézeaux, wafting from the glass in a blend of black cherries, black plums, dark soil tones, herbs, a bit of bonfire, incipient notes of venison, espresso and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and nascently complex, with a fine core, ripe tannins and excellent length and grip on the poised and classy finish.Beautifully rendered and now mostly mature fruit that offers exquisite detail and a refined yet earthy character is followed by fine, relatively rich and intense flavors that culminate in a wonderfully long finish where the '96 style acidity is prominent enough to notice but not to dominate. For my taste, while this could be drunk now with reasonable pleasure, I will cellar my remaining bottles for another 4 to 5 years first because at that time this should be approaching its peak. Note however that this has the balance and acid backbone to live for another 25 years. Multiple and consistent notes."
