Albert Bichot Vosne Romanee Les Malconsorts Domaine du Clos Frantin 2017
The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts 1er Cru has a clean, pure bouquet of black cherries, blueberry and a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine weight in the mouth and a touch of sour cherry that enlivens the detailed finish. I have encountered better vintages of Bichot's Malconsorts in the past.
A bright, cherry- and currant-flavored red, with accents of rose and cinnamon. Juicy and elegant, showing fine balance and energy as the finish plays out. Drink now through 2028. 250 cases imported.
