maybe...

Russula emetica?

Russula nobilis?

Looks like R. nobilis, the common species under beech, but I only see oak leaves.

Looks a bit robust for R. silvestris, the closely related species that is commonly associated with oak, but it could be this.

But with very few exceptions, naming a Russula from a photograph is at best risky and more often overconfidence and unawareness of the very large number of similar and variable species. Microscopic examination nearly always necessary.
