Domaine de Montille Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2017 (7767)

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


Jancis Robinson
Winemaker Brian Sieve suggests this has the stuffing that surpasses some grands crus. 100% whole bunch, 55% new oak. Bought from Moillard – between Bichot and Dujac’s parcels. Vines aged over 60 years. Organic and biodynamic farming. Mid crimson and dark-fruited and spiced on the nose. Both ripe and crunchy. Power and chew on the palate, but it has wonderful elegance in its dark, rocky fruit profile, and the tannins slim down on the finish. Dark and subtle beauty. Great length. (JH) (Drink between 2025-2035). 17.5/20

Jasper Morris MW

All whole bunch, 55% new wood and a late malolactic fermentation here. Quite rich purple, with a lighter rim, raspberry fruit, the whole bunch effect is in support rather than too obvious. Firm fruit, comes up to the tannins at the back, Decent acidity, but a little lack of concentration, I thought. Brian says just more backward. But note that the quality of the fruit is up where it should be. Tasted: November 2018.


James Suckling Tasting Report

Suave and fragrant nose with plenty of flowers and a very elegant and rather sleek palate that remains light-footed. Then, a serious tannin build on the very long, mineral finish. Drink from 2023.


Tim Atkin MW

The de Montille Malconsorts has lightened up in 2017, which may be a vintage thing. This is less oaky and chewy than some of its predecessors. The 100% whole bunches are very well done, adding some savoury, sappy notes to the layered red and black fruits, with floral top-notes wafting above the surface. Sensitive winemaking from Brian Sieve. (Drink between 2022-2030).
