Domaine de Montille - Vosne Romanee 1er Cru " Aux Malconsorts" - red - 2017 - 750 ml
ABOUT "AUX MALCONSORTS"
Vosne-Romanée is home to some of the most precious and rares wines in the world. The southern border of the famous Grand Cru "La Tâche" (monopole of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti) is called "Aux Malconsorts". An appellation with a total surface area of 5.86 hectares that benefits from an exceptional placement - with the altitude, exposition and a soil type very similar to its illustrious neighbor, it could be a Grand Cru.
The wines from "Les Malconsorts" are of a prodigious finesse and elegance. The aromatic complexity of its floral, perfumed and often spicy notes are extraordinary; the silky tannins, the depth and the ethereal character of the body give the wine an airy dimension. They are among the wines that reveal the most refined and successful expression of Burgundian Pinot Noir. This is a Grand Premier Cru: a Premier Cru that rivals the Grand Crus.OUR NOTES
Domaine de Montille is known to craft wines with great aromatic purity, always favoring balance and elegance over power and extraction. The wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, produced in the most natural way possible and possessing an impressive ability to age, as the family believes only time can reveal the true potential of the greatest wines. The domaine's current style remains faithful to Hubert's natural and idealistic approach, which demanded considerable patience while waiting for appropriate drinking windows for certain vintages. Etienne, however, has taken up the task to bring greater aromatic expression and silkier and more unctuous textures to the reds, allowing them to drink earlier, without compromising their ability to age.
The idea of minimal intervention speaks very clearly to the team when it comes to their terroir. There was total abandonment of chemical fertilizers and herbicides in 1985, and then fungicides and synthetic insecticides in 1995 before switching to organic, biodynamic in 2005. Finally, the domain became Ecocert Bio certified in 2012.
