Oak in evidence but will be blended with 30-40% older barrels. Chewy. Not showing that well today.
Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030
The 2011 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru is a step down in intensity from the 2009 and 2010: leafy red fruit, forest floor, the stem addition here jutting out a little more than previous vintages. The palate is soft and mellow on the entry, again, the stem addition dictating the style of the wine rather than the terroir, attractive in its own way. But I would have preferred more depth and fruité on the linear, rather low-key finish. Is there more to come? Tasted at Flint Wines’s Domaine Dujac tasting in London.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028
