  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A lithe, tense version, whose taut profile is woven with cherry, strawberry and spice flavors. Firms up on the lingering finish, where the saturated fruit suggests fine potential for the future. Best from 2021 through 2034. 700 cases made.

    The 2015 Vosne Romanee 1Er Cru les Malconsorts, which is under the Domaine du Clos Frantin, comes from 1.8 hectares of vine spread over different parcels. This has a more opulent bouquet compared directly with Bichot's Amoureuses, laden with glossy red cherry and blueberry fruit that perhaps disguise the terroir expression at the moment. The palate is smooth and rounded with good depth, layers of sweet red fruit tinged with white pepper and spice box, though it needs more refinement and precision to develop on the finish that seems too eager to make an impression, whereas the Amoureuses lets the terroir do all the talking. Less might have made a more convincing Les Malconsorts?

  • Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
