The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts Christiane is made from a tiny part of the Malconsorts vineyard that sits within La Tache. The 2010 Christiane flows from the glass with a rich, exotic tapestry of dazzling fruit, black cherries, violets, licorice, spices and hard candy. White flowers add lift and sweet perfume on the breathtakingly beautiful finish. The integration of fruit and structure is virtually seamless. In other words, everything is in perfect balance. Readers who can find the Christiane should not hesitate. It is without question one of the wines of the vintage. (AG)
This is compositionally similar to the regular cuvée except that here there are even more spice elements in play. The powerful, long and very serious flavors are built on a base of minerality and while the supporting tannins are just as firm, they are finer; indeed the overall mouth feel is more refined before finally culminating in a balanced, pure and Zen-like finish. Superb. *Don't miss! Outstanding!*
Good medium red. Rich, slightly high-toned aromas of candied cherry, crushed rock, roasted herbs and orange zest. Large-scaled, voluminous wine with a lovely silky texture, but more brooding today than the "regular" Malconsorts, with medicinal blackberry and mineral flavors accented by saline and peppery nuances. Wonderfully sappy wine, but this is likely to require at least six to eight years of cellaring. (ST)
