Albert Bichot Vosne Romanée Malconsorts 2017
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.
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.
