Tasting Notes

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts Cuvée Christiane 1er Cru contains a little more new oak than the regular cuvée, though it is also 100% whole cluster fruit. It has a supremely well defined bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, crushed stone and wet limestone aromas that seem to gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, impressive depth, silky and smooth in texture with a light spiced and intense finish that lingers in the mouth. This is an exceptionally fine Cuvée Christian that should offer 20 to 30 years of pleasure.

Score: 94/96Neal Martin, vinous.com, January 2019

There is a more evident application of wood present on the even spicier aromas that seem slightly riper and more deeply pitched. Otherwise the mouth feel of the similarly concentrated and structured flavors offer just a bit more depth on the equally long finish. This beauty should also reward extended keeping.
