Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2018 (6235)

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

Platinum Medal at the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards.


Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report: Less depth of aroma but much more width and complexity. More zip of freshness and energy - ooh this is a bundle of energy. Dynamic, complex - brilliant finishing - bravo!


Neal Martin, Vinous: The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts 1er Cru comes from Bichot’s substantial 1.75-hectare holding, handpicked on September 11 and made with 40% whole bunch and 45% new oak. This has a high-class bouquet of pure red cherries, cranberry and wild strawberry scents, hints of rose petal and orange blossom emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red berry fruit and a frame of quite firm tannins that should guarantee the longevity of this Malconsorts. It feels a little aloof on the finish, but it just needs time to soften its edges. 92-94 Points


Jasper Morris MW: There is a massively deep purple colour to this Malconsorts, with bundles of energetic red fruit on the nose. The palate too demonstrates this, some orange zest, otherwise entirely red fruit, no black notes, good acidity and the persistence of a grand cru. Tasted: November 2019. 92-94 Points


International Wine Challenge 2020: Youthful burgundy with silky texture, vibrant red cherry and black current aromas. Tight knit tannins and bright acidity suggests good future potential. 95 Points and Gold Medal

Professional Reviews

Decanter World Wine Awards

Sleek floral aromas lead to a powerhouse of stewed cherries and plums and delicious toasty oak and spice; with a succulent texture, enriching tannins and a black cherry acidity; long and complex.


James Suckling Tasting Report

A rich, layered red with intense, very ripe fruit that shows dried cherries, smoked oak and some meat. It’s full-bodied and very layered. Solid tannins give depth to the wine. Try after 2023.


Wine Enthusiast - Anne Krebiehl MW

Red cherry and a touch of smoke are subdued on the wine's shy nose. The palate is equally restrained, concentrated but with depth that has inherent grace. Firm tannins still crunch, but every crackle of that sinuous texture holds more perfume and more cherry. The body is taut and toned. All is framed with freshness and will only get better over the years. Editor's Choice.
