Deep, bright red. Pungent, high-toned aromas of raspberry, crushed stone, tobacco, orange zest and Earl Grey tea, plus a whiff of pine. Juicy and imploded, with electric definition to its penetrating mineral-driven flavors. A baby today but finishes with outstanding length, clarity and perfume.

The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts caresses the palate with seamless integration of fruit, acidity and tannin. Powerful, yet impeccable in its elegance, the Malconsorts shows incredible grace from start to finish, with palate staining intensity in its rich close. This is superb juice that only suffers from the wines tasted before and after. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.
