A slightly more expressive and notably spicier nose of primarily red berry fruit aromas that also carry ample floral and earth influence over to the rich and full flavors that somewhat surprisingly do not possess the same degree of complexity, at least not at this very early juncture, while culminating in a serious, powerful and long finish that is a bit denser. I very much like the vibrancy and completeness. A qualitative choice though the Christiane is a bit more firmly structured. *Don't Miss*
Medium red. Ineffable perfume of wild strawberry and white pepper. Then juicy, tight and backward, with a more powerful crushed-stone minerality than the "regular" Malconsorts but not the previous wine's texture and complexity. The energy of this wine is exceptional but I find it hard to taste today. Montille says it's deeper than the regular wine, but I'll wait to taste these two wines in bottle. Incidentally, these two cuvees offer a rare near-perfect experiment in terroir, as the two parcels feature vines planted at the same time and were vinified with 80% whole clusters and the identical percentage of new oak.
