Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2016. Great Reviews!

 

Frantin 2016 Malconsorts Header
Another great review - 94-95 Points from James Suckling MW
 
Les Malconsorts is an exceptional 1er Cru. Being located alongside La Tache and less than 400 metres from Romanee-Conti it comes as no surprise. 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.

James Suckling MW:  
Beautiful crushed roses with an array of fresh raspberries and red cherries, as well as light mocha and oak spices in the background. The palate has excellent tannin maturity and depth. A bold, explosive finish. This is exceptional. This elegant vintage has delivered a wine with real clarity and detail. But still needs some time. Try from 2024. 94-95 Points

Tim Atkin MW: The Bichot holdings run to 1.75 hectares and cover both the upper and lower parts of the Premier Cru. This is a sturdy, almost austere expression of the site with serious tannins, dense, chewy black fruits and a touch of mint. Very well made, but needs considerable time in bottle. 2028-38. 94 Points
 
Jasper Morris MW:
 Significantly rich deep purple. A wonderful richness of flavour sweeps across the palate. It is still held in check a bit by the wood. A solid, rich, firm wine at the finish, with impressive density. 94 Points
Burghound: 
(from a whopping 1.75 ha parcel). A relatively deeply pitched nose offers plenty of both floral and spice elements along with notes of plum, dark cherry and a touch of Asian-style tea. As is usually the case there is excellent volume and a taut muscularity to the sappy broad-shouldered flavors that flash superb depth and persistence. Note well though that this classic example is definitely built-to-age and is going to need at least most of a decade to be approachable. Recommended. SWEET SPOT WINE 2031+. 92-94 Points

Great Value 2016's from Domaine Remi Jeanniard
I am always on the lookout for interesting new domaines with top vineyards. Whilst in Burgundy recently I purchased a little parcel of 2016's from Domaine Remi Jeanniard.
 
Remi Jeanniard started his own domanie after his father retired in 2003 and his vineyards was split between Remi and his brother. The domaine of just 6.1 hectares is located in Morey-St.-Denis, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits, with plantings in Morey-St-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Chambolle-Musigny. He practices sustainable farming including pruning in Spring to control yields, green harvest in July and refrains from Chemical Fertilizers. Grapes are handpicked and fermented only using natural yeast. Bottling is done without filtering nor fining. SO2 is used minimally, choosing instead to preserve the wine's freshness with carbonic gasses.
 
Domaine Remi Jeanniard's vines are older than the average vine age in the region, with all of his Vielles Vignes village bottlings being at least 50 years old, and the Morey St Denis over 60. The wines are not powerhouses, instead they're attuned to a Zen-like quiet, slowly drawing on seasoned Burgundy characters. The aromatic profile is filled with red fruits and flowery bouquet, with the higher cuvees showing deeper, complex aromas of blue fruits, peppery spiciness and savoriness. The wines have one thing in common, the acidity. Highly refreshing, it brings out the sensation of salinity and juiciness.

Both are keenly priced and very limited.
