Albert Bichot Vosne Romanée Malconsorts 2014
Color: Limpid, bright intense and deep ruby red with violet reflections. Nose: Fine and complex with primary delicate and discreet woody aromas. Notes of soft fruit followed by a spicy finale. After a few minutes, subtle notes of peppermint and cedar will develop. Taste: All the crispiness of Pinot Noir with a very pleasant tannic texture which smoothly envelopes the palate. Powerful but silky tannins. Nice finale with a hint of liquorice. A promising future of complexity to look forward to on ageing. Food Pairing: With a meal, "Les Malconsorts" will voluptuously caress refined cuisine - almost sophisticated - which is not afraid of contrasts but which remains down to earth. Lasagnes with thinly-sliced duck filets and parmesan, rack of lamb with thyme, or scallop tagine with safran. The cheese platter should include mature Tomme de Savoie and aged Mimolette.
