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)
(from a 1.57 ha parcel). 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. I would add that the domaine believes the 2015 is the finest Malconsorts that they have made and I would agree with that assessment. 2030+
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+.
Healthy medium red. Superb floral lift to the aromas of dark raspberry and crushed-stone minerality. Larger-scaled and deeper than the Beaux Monts but at the same time showing outstanding sappy pungency and definition to its black raspberry and mineral flavors. Outstanding mineral-driven energy frames and extends the very long, slowly rising finish, which features chewy but fully ripe tannins. A splendid premier cru with grand cru volume and class. (ST)
