Domaine de Montille Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts Cuvee Christiane 2017 (7782)

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


Jancis Robinson
Barrel sample, already racked. Parcel that touches La Tâche and has the same terroir. 55% new oak. 100% whole bunch. Mid crimson. A dusty mineral note initially, then restrained stony dark fruit. A step up in intensity compared with the straight Malconsorts but still that bone-dry dark finesse to the texture, finer still in its precision, and less chewy. Incredibly elegant in structure and so tender. Long and ultra-sophisticated. (JH) (Drink between 2025-2035). 18/20

Professional Reviews

Jasper Morris MW

This has very good density of colour and notably more fruit, just a touch darker than the regular Malconsorts, with increased nobility, all of which is consistent with other vintages. The very dense primary fruit bounces through to the end in vibrant style, lifted by the whole bunch vinification. This will be an excellent wine – once again. Tasted: November 2018.


James Suckling Tasting Report

This has a very deep-set, dark-cherry core on the nose with cocoa powder and a very rich cast of tannins that carry long, sweet and exceptionally fresh. Bathed in flavor, this is super long and powerful with a deep-set resolve that really makes for a thrilling wine with deep, sweet red and dark-fruit impact. Smooth, deep, velvety tannins give a very, very long finish. 100 per cent whole cluster, from a parcel that touches La Tâche on two sides. Try from 2023.


Tim Atkin MW

Considerably denser and more concentrated than the regular de Montille Malconsorts in 2017, this comes from a 0.5ha parcel of older vines. It's a very spicy, serious red with evident whole-cluster fermentation, a hint of green malt, scented oak and a core of acidity. One to tuck away for a while. (Drink between 2025-2032).
