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 no doubt the 2012 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 2012 91-94 Points out of barrel - who knows what the bottled wine will score?

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
