The 2013 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts is a gorgeous wine for so many reasons, but especially in the way it constantly changes in the glass. At times, it is the wine's dark, spiced fruit that is pushed forward, while at other times, the bright, citrus-inflected notes typical of the year are more prominent. An exquisite, beautifully layered Burgundy, the 2013 Malconsorts is going to provide fabulous drinking for several decades. Next to the Beaux Monts, the Malconsorts its quite a bit more reserved. Jeremy Seysses notes that yields here were lower than in 2012. (AG)
The 2013 Dujac Malconsorts is another beautiful wine in the making, offering up a very red fruity and elegant nose of raspberries, cherries, Vosne spices, duck, coffee, a beautifully complex base of soil and a lovely framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and refined, with a lovely core, stunning transparency, supple tannins and a very long, tangy and laser-like finish. Though the 2013s are putting on weight with further cask aging, it seems likely that the Dujac Malconsorts is destined to be a stellar middleweight at its apogee that seduces with its great aromatic and flavor complexity, coupled to marvelous intensity of flavor, rather than being an opulent wine at its apogee. But, for those willing to look a little deeper, this is going to be a very, very special bottle in a decade or two. Drink between 2022-2060. 94+
The 2013 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru les Malconsorts has a touch more fruit on the nose than the Beaux Monts '13 at this point, the aromatics possessing more volume. The palate is well balanced and very harmonious with lacy tannins that belie that depth of fruit underneath. This has more breeding than the Beaux Monts at this stage and certainly more persistency in the mouth. (NM)
This is more restrained though here too there is a plethora of spice elements on the ultra-fresh nose dark currant, violet, rose petal and exotic tea scents. The 2013 version of this wine is sleeker than it usually is because while there is clearly good muscle the mouth feel of the medium weight plus flavors is more refined than normal, all wrapped in a powerful, intense, austere and mineral-driven finale. This is, in a word, excellent. *Outstanding*
Healthy dark red. Pure, soil-driven aromas of raspberry, red licorice, flint and cumin. Sexy, silky and superconcentrated, showing a mineral pungency to the red and darker berry and spice flavors. This has near-grand cru volume and weight. Finishes plush and fine-grained, with serious tannins arriving late to provide firm grip. The rising finish leaves behind an exhilarating suggestion of exotic fruits. (ST) 93+
Light to mid ruby. The aromas starting to show a little more complexity here in a lovely red-fruited perfume as well as a more savoury, earthy/mineral note. Lots of spice and a rich deep chocolate-like smoothness of texture more than flavour that then lengthens and slims on the end to a long, fresh, scented finish. 17.5/20 points. (JH)
