ROCHE DE BELLENE VOSNE ROMANEE AUX MALCONSORTS 2009
Offered APR 26th, 2017
In Vosne Romanee, along the southern border of the La Tache (monopole of the Domaine de la Romanee Conti) is the famous premier cru vineyard, Aux Malconsorts. With its exceptional location, and an altitude, exposition and a soil type very similar to its illustrious neighbor, it could very well be a grand cru.
The wines from Aux Malconsorts are of a prodigious finesse and elegance. The aromatic complexity of its floral, perfumed and often spicy notes are extraordinary; the silky tannins, the depth and the ethereal character of the body give the wine an airy dimension. They are among the wines that reveal the most refined expression of Pinot Noir.

(91-94) points Burghound: “This is presently the spiciest of the three Vosne 1ers in the range which adds plenty of background nuance and complexity to the red currant, plum and cassis aromas. The earthy and relatively powerful big-bodied flavors possess excellent intensity and copious amounts of dry extract that coats the palate on the hugely long finish. Despite the youthful expressiveness presently being displayed, this is really quite a serious effort that I suspect will shut down for a good while as it’s clearly built to age.”
