100% new oak. He is lucky enough to have 0.75 ha. Quite rich on the nose – very pleasing. Lively rich fruit with a fine tension on the finish. Nothing forced. Very Vosne. Insistent and persistent.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
Medium red. Deep, ripe aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, rose petal and underbrush, with complementary oak tones. Rich, sappy and sweet; compellingly round and ripe but with lovely underlying minerality providing support to the red fruit flavors. Captivating wine with ripe tannins and excellent perfumed length. This boasts near-grand cru texture.

The 2011 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts has a graphite-tinged bouquet that seems almost flinty, with sharp and focused tart red fruits that take a little time to mellow. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, crisp acidity and a leafy but weighty/structured finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a Vosne 2011 that deserves three of four years in bottle before broaching. Drink 2016-2028.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028
