Domaine de Clos Frantin Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2017 - 6L
Les Malconsorts is an exceptional Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru. Maison Albert Bichot is lucky enough to own 1.75 ha (4.3 acres) of this jewel, which is located close to legendary vineyards (less than 400 metres from Romanée-Conti and less than 600 metres from Richebourg!). The name "Malconsorts" suggests that this land must once have been at the origin of disputes between “mauvais consorts” (bad partners), from the Latin word CONSORS meaning "associate, partner".
The nose is fine and complex with delicate primary aromas enhanced by a subtle touch of oak. Soft, fruity notes end on a spicy finish. After a few minutes, subtle notes of peppermint and cedar develop. On the palate, all the crispiness of Pinot Noir with very pleasing, smooth, mouth-filling tannic texture.
