Professional Reviews


This too finished its malo late and was quite reduced aromatically but the sturdy and powerful big-bodied flavors are also impressively scaled with serious size, weight and richness with the robust character of a classic Malconsorts yet this remains harmonious, long and beautifully balanced. A real stunner of a wine. (Drink starting 2017)


WIne Advocate - David Schildknecht

Saouma judged that his 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts had finally, just, finished malolactic fermentation. Bitter-sweet blackberry and charred meat aromatics lead to an almost savagely intense palate impression of black fruits, charred meat and stone, as formidable as anything that has gone before in this collection, but much less flattering, polished or charming. Meaty, stony, gripping but obviously tannic and a bit austere in its finish – an effect doubtless reinforced by remnants of CO2 – this needs time even short term to properly assess its genuine personality. Certainly though, it is already promising and will be a candidate for a decade or more in the cellar.
