Les Malconsorts is an exceptional 1er Cru. It is located alongside La Tache and is less than 400 metres from Romanee-Conti. Domaine du Frantin owns a substantial 1.76 ha parcel with a vine age of 35 to 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 no doubt the 2011 will also be very popular.
It is interesting to note that Burghound scored the classic 2010
90-93 Points out of barrel and 93 Points once bottled. He has scored the 2011 91-94 Points out of barrel - who knows what the finished wine will score?

Burghound: An intricately woven nose blends both oak and natural spice elements that serve as an elegant backdrop to the earthy combination of violets, dark berries and cassis scents. There is exceptionally good richness to the very round, intense and muscular large-scaled and very firm flavors that possess a seductive texture. There is excellent volume and phenolic maturity to the extract-rich finish that is currently quite robust yet remains beautifully well-balanced. A classic built-to-age Malconsorts.
