Les Malconsorts is an exceptional Vosne-Romanée Premier Cru. We are lucky enough to own 1.75 ha (4.3 acres) of this jewel, which is located close to legendary vineyards (less than 400 meters from Romanee-Conti and less than 600 meters from Richebourg!).
The name "Malconsorts" suggests that this land must once have been at the origin of disputes between "bad consorts" (bad partners), from the Latin word CONSORS meaning "associate, partner". These litigants would have had a common interest in a case. The prefix "Mal-" would indicate that they conducted themselves inappropriately over land that they owned jointly.
The nose is fine and complex with delicate primary aromas enhanced by a subtle touch of oak. Soft, fruity notes end on a spicy finish. After a few minutes, subtle notes of peppermint and cedar develop.
On the palate, all the crispiness of Pinot Noir with very pleasing, smooth, mouth-filling tannic texture.
