Frantin Malconsorts Label
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. We are too early for most critics...

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": 1.75 ha from 6 sandier parts and lower down heavier soil - the bottom left which is more sandy and the rest which is more clay - there can be 3 days difference in maturity between these two sectors - 'clearly different wines too, the lower part more massive less complex.' The only area in 2017 where they did a green harvest.
Hmm - not a big nose today, but one with a lot of inviting, faintly spiced complexity - true to its roots. Fuller, more depth, more complexity - certainly more structural vs the Amoureuses, but also much more complex - accessibly complex - today. Super finishing depth of flavour. Ooh that's good! - Excellent wine.

For the record these are the scores for every vintage we have imported:

2016: Burghound 92-94, Tim Atkin 94, James Suckling 94-95
2015: Burghound 91-94, Decanter 96, Winehog 93-94
2014: Burghound 93, Tim Atkin 94, Decanter 94
2013: Burghound 91-94, Tim Atkin 94, Decanter 95
2012: Burghound 91-94, Winehog 92-94, Parker 94
2011: Burghound 91-94, Tim Atkin 92
2010: Burghound 93, Wine Enthusiast 94
2009: Burghound 93, Decanter Gold Medal

As you can see the scores are very consistent!

Bichot has owned the plot of Aux Malconsorts since 1964, when they acquired the Grivelet estate including vineyards and the Clos Frantin chai and mansion in Vosne-Romanee.

Still a little of the great 2016 available!

Our first delivery has come and gone. We have a little more which will be delivered early this year. If you missed out previously make sure you jump in soon!
James Suckling Tasting Report:
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
Jasper Morris:
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
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

750ml bottle Pre Arrival $318.50
1500ml Magnum Pre Arrival $637.00
