2013 is a cool vintage with a fresh, elegant, crisp flesh. The wines are showing well since the first tasting in barrels and our village wine should come to maturity quickly. As for any good vintage, the 1er and Grands crus will provide pleasure in their youth (5yo) and for a long time. To preserve this vintage's fruit, we chose to destem most of our wine on the Côte de Beaune, except for the Corton (2/3 whole cluster) and Volnay Mitans and Taillepieds (respectively 1/3 and 100%). In the Côte de Nuits where the stem maturity and the absence of hail allowed it, we kept around 2/3 of whole cluster, asserting our style.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru les Malconsorts appeared very closed and unresponsive on the nose, a little subdued when compared to the Corton Clos du Roi '13 alongside. Then it begins to wake up with blackberry, cranberry and raspberry preserve that blossoms with each encouraging swirl. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, supple and rounded in the mouth, exerting a gentle grip and a long finish that belies the backbone. This is very fine, although as I remarked at the time, I feel that there is a clear difference between this and the "Christianne" cuvée this year.
