Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts Tete de Cuvee 2015 (4153)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Vosne-Romanee
Pinot Noir

I tasted the wine a month ago (late November 2016) whilst in Burgundy. Red-black in colour, deep and rich to the eye. A little closed on the nose at first (as Malconsorts often is in its youth). Then black fruits with a symphony of spice. Minerals. Violets. Very structured, long. Powerful with soaring fruit and fine, chewy tannins. This is going to be a great Malconsorts - I believe the finest vintage since we started importing the wine in the 2009 vintage.


Please note that all reviews, including that above are for the the regular cuvee, not the special bottling. The Tete de Cuvee is darker and more structured with an incredibly long finish.

The Malconsort 2015 is also a big vinous wine. The nose offer plenty of ripe fruit – juicy and fresh – supported by a fine floral minerality – 50% whole cluster was used. On the palate intense, vinous and weighty – with a fine energy and balance despite the relatively high level of alcohol. It’s actually a quite elegant wine given it’s vinous character and there are no signs of overripeness. A very fine Malconsort in the making ..



(from a whopping 1.76 ha parcel). A notably ripe and wonderfully spicy nose reflects notes of liqueur-like dark cherry, cassis, plum and violet. The dense, serious and markedly powerful big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract before terminating in a muscular and impressively long finish that also displays a hint of warmth. This is an imposingly-scaled and quite firmly structured effort that will require 12 to 15 years of bottle to arrive at its apogee. Patience. (91-94)/2027+
