Vosne Malconsorts, Domaine Hudelot-Noellat 2015
The 2015 Vosne Romanee 1Er Cru les Malconsorts boasts an outstanding, transparent and yet powerful bouquet with potent red berry fruit armed with superb tension and mineral drive. The palate is very concentrated, quite ripe and sweet yet still very precise, not a million miles away from Domaine Sylvain Cathiard in style, bestowed with ample energy and sustain on the structured finish. This is just magnificent.

A markedly ripe nose retains a lovely sense of freshness that adds to the appeal of the restrained but very spicy and floral-infused red and dark currant aromas. In classic Malconsorts fashion, the broad-shouldered flavors are bold, powerful and robust with excellent minerality and even better complexity on the strikingly long finish. Note however that this is most definitely going to require a long snooze in a cool cellar and especially due to the large format bottling!

The superb 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts offers up a bouquet that, at this youthful stage, shares aromas of cassis, cherry, smoked duck and orange rind with Hudelot-Noëllat's Suchots, with the addition of top-notes of dried flowers and spice. On the palate, however, the wine is more layered and powerful, with a lavish core of fruit, an ample chassis of ripe tannin, and a long, dramatic finish.
