Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanee "Malconsorts" Premier Cru 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts has a very tightly wound bouquet: introspective at first and then gradually unfurling with raspberry and cranberry fruit, slate and wet pavement notes. The palate is medium-bodied with fine structure. This is quite spicy on the entry compared to the Les Beaux Monts with admirable focus, the finish a little "hemmed in" at the moment, although it will flesh out by the time of bottling. This Aux Malconsorts should be reserved for those with the nous to age wine in bottle." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate *(94-96 Points)*

External Reviews for Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanee "Malconsorts" Premier Cru

The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts has a sophisticated, mineral-driven bouquet with great clarity, less fruite and more restrained than the Beaux Monts but with greater focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a real candied, bonbon element, a core a sweetness that lends this real personality and wonderful poise on the finish. Lovely.

Good full, bright red. Knockout high-pitched perfume combines red cherry, red berries, rose petal, blood orange and an exotic hint of white fruits. Wonderfully precise and youthfully imploded, offering outstanding inner-mouth tension to the flavors of red fruits, minerals and flowers. Most impressive today on the firmly tannic, rising, palate-staining finish. I couldn’t tell that I had spit the wine! A superb wine in the making: wound up tight today but not hard. Jeremy Seysses noted that the ex-Thomas-Moillard vineyards had a lot of nitrogen in the soil and were previously prone to rot. The use of cover crop here has been of critical importance, he told me.

The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Aux Malconsorts comes across as quite cool and introspective. Ultimately that is a great sign for readers who plan on cellaring the wine. Today the Malconsorts is totally closed in on itself. It shows little of the exuberance it did from barrel. Still, from time to time the wine reveals hints of its brilliance and pedigree. The Malconsorts should be dazzling in another few years. Opening a bottle now is only going to be an academic exercise. Anticipated maturity: 2017–2029.

All tannins and black fruits, this is a powerful wine. It is tough, very structured, firm and closed up. The acidity dominates the red fruits on the finish. It has immense promise for the long term.

Good full red. Cherry liqueur, cocoa, truffle and some earthy low tones on the inviting nose. Fat, sweet and very ripe; uncommonly lush and mouthfilling. Seems much more accessible today than the Beaux-Monts but this large-scaled premier cru boasts terrific depth to support a long life in bottle. Finishes very full and long.

The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Aux Malconsorts blossoms on the palate with inimitable grace in its bright red fruit. Floral notes appear later, adding lift and volume. The Malconsorts possesses dazzling inner perfume, with clean, saline notes framing the exquisite finish. This is one of the more generous of the 1er Crus at Dujac, and always one of my personal favorites. Anticipated maturity: 2017–2034.
