We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The aromas have a rare complexity and elegance. They offer an astonishing bouquet of spices, cherry pits, black fruits, dried flowers, musk and hard candies. The textures are simultaneously dense and ethereal. The attacks are brisk and the mid-palates are etheral and lengthy. The tannins are soft and well-wrapped in intense fruit that vascilates between tangy and sweet. The suave finishes offer refreshment and persistence.

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.
