2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Malconsorts. MAGNUMS and a small number of bottles left

Frantin Malconsorts Magnums 2012

Vosne-Romanee's most powerful Premier Cru and always one of our most popular wines...

Last 35 Bottles and 14 Magnums

 

If you would like some of the 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts I suggest you act quickly! We have just 35 bottles and 14 Magnums left!  

 

Les Malconsorts is an exceptional 1er Cru. It is located alongside La Tache and is less than 400 metres from Romanee-Conti. Domaine du Clos Frantin owns a substantial 1.76 ha parcel with a vine age of around 40 years. Jasper Morris MW says "Aux Malconsorts was first taken out of scrubland and planted with vines in 1610, relatively late for this part of the Cote. Nonetheless it is an exceptional vineyard, one of my three favourite premier crus along with Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses and Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St-Jacques."  

 

It is one of our best selling wines every year and the 2012 has been no exception.

Burghound: Relatively strong reduction again renders the nose unreadable. There is excellent concentration to the robust and overtly muscular medium weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract on the structured and very firm but not hard finish that displays outstanding length. This is still very primary but the underlying material is so good that this should be sensational if given enough time to develop. A Sweet Spot wine. Outstanding. 91-94 Points

 

Winehog.org: The Vosne Romanee Malconsort 2012 is a gorgeous wine in the making. The nose is quite reduced but still very expressive and floral (50% whole cluster) with a lovely vibrant red and dark fruit - hints violets and peony rose. On the palate very refined and quite silky cool fruit - long, focused and intense. Love the energy and mineralic tension - and the airy and lightfooted intensity. A very impressive wine - a beautiful expression of Vosne.

The Delightful 2012 Latricieres-Chambertin

 

A wonderful wine and my pick of the 2012 cuvees at Albert Bichot.

 

Wine Advocate: 

The 2012 Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru is straight-laced on the nose: prim and proper black fruit with tertiary notes developing. The palate is very fine with a chalky opening, crisp acidity and slightly brittle tannins. But the fruit profile is very pleasurable with blackberry, a touch of mulberry and raspberry. It actually builds nicely in the mouth and challenges the Chambertin in terms of length. Look out for this as it is one of Bichot's top performing 2012s. 92-94 Points 

Normally $389.00
Pre Arrival $330.50
