The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts has a very tightly wound bouquet: introspective at first and then gradually unfurling with raspberry and cranberry fruit, slate and wet pavement notes. The palate is medium-bodied with fine structure. This is quite spicy on the entry compared to the Les Beaux Monts with admirable focus, the finish a little "hemmed in" at the moment, although it will flesh out by the time of bottling. This Aux Malconsorts should be reserved for those with the nous to age wine in bottle.(NM)
I think I write this almost every year these days, but the new vintage of Domaine Dujac Malconsorts is absolutely stunning! The bouquet is pure, vibrant and complex, soaring from the glass in a complex blend of raspberries, cherries, a touch of blood orange, duck, crystalline minerality, raw cocoa and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is very pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with great mineral drive, laser-like focus, fine-grained tannins and a stunning sense of weightlessness that is a joy to behold on the very, very long and vibrant finish. Magical. 2024-2065+.
(racked): Bright, full red. Darker on the nose than the Beaux Monts, offering reticent but pure scents of blackberry and crushed stone. Larger-scaled and deeper than the Beaux Monts and sweeter too, with its intense, thick berry flavors enlivened by crushed-stone minerality. Very long and sappy on the compellingly sweet aftertaste. Great potential here--and a spectacular showing today.(ST)
A discreet application of wood serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the cool, pure and ultra-spicy and floral aromas of dark currant, plum and soy. The tautly muscular, intense and impressively scaled big-bodied flavors drip with both dry extract and evident minerality on the robust and driving finish that is sneaky long. This is quite firmly structured and will require extended patience before it reaches it apogee though it should very much be worth the wait.
