Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2016 Sylvain Chathiard
Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2016 is a fine wine from the producer Sylvain Chathiard. The company that now has 7 has located in the municipalities of Vosne-Romanée, Nuits St. Georges and Chambolle-Musigny, works with the utmost attention and respect for the terroir for the production of pure fine wines with great longevity. This Vosne Romanée is an unavailable wine from the 1er Cru Les Malconsorts vineyard of 0.74 ha, from vineyards that are over 35 years old. About 3000 bottles are produced: after a total destemming of the grapes, fermentation takes place in steel at a controlled temperature, the wine undergoes aging in pièces of 228 liters 100% new for about 18 months. The melting finish ages in small cuvés for two months before bottling. Rare and emblematic Cuvèe, Vosne Romanée 1er Cru Les Malconsorts is a great success for Sylvain Chathiard's company: bright ruby red, the nose releases intense aromas of cherry, dark berries, spices and licorice, animal hints like leather and fumè, in an elegant new wooden frame. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, with structured but silky tannins and a long finish on the palate. Considering that Chathiard wines are destined for a very long life, perhaps this 2016 is still a bit young but an immense potential is perceivable, impossible to forget.
