Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Vosne Romanée 1er Cru les Malconsorts from Domaine de Montille was a vexing showing. Here it displayed a reduced nose, very savoury, almost animally with game and dried blood notes infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly ferrous red berry fruit, a little savoury in the mouth and some dryness marking the finish. Not unattractive, though you would never describe it as being the "the best in show." Furthermore, it seems to lose some of its clarity in the glass. I will reserve judgement based on this showing.
