    Goedhuis, January 2014

    An explosion of raspberries and strawberries on the nose, the fruit content in this wine is quite simply stunning. A wine of immense quality and class, balancing its natural poise and composure with real style and rich, succulent fruit. A very special wine indeed with a long, long finish.

    Score: 93-95

    The 2012 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts comes from 0.75-hectares of 42-year old vine, the largest of Cathiard's premier crus. After allowing a few minutes of the reduction to blow away, it reveals a lovely bouquet drenched in mineral-rich dark berry fruit - blackberry and blueberry on full song. The palate is medium-bodied and tightly wound at the moment but there is a wonderful sense of symmetry and poise. This is a brilliant wine.

    Score: 94

    (from a .74 ha parcel of 35+ year old vines). There is plenty of Vosne-style spice in the form of inner mouth perfume along with soft floral and tea nuances. As one would expect from a first-rate example there is excellent volume, power and muscle to the intensely mineral-infused big-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the explosively long and impeccably well-balanced finish that goes on and on. This is flat out terrific though note that a minimum of 10 and probably 15 years will be required to fully realize the marvelous development potential. A classic Malconsorts of power and depth.

    While reduction renders the nose difficult to assess there is plenty of Vosne-style spice in the form of inner mouth perfumed. There is excellent volume, power and muscle to the intensely mineral-infused big-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the explosively long and impeccably well-balanced finish that goes on and on. This is flat out terrific though note that plenty of time will be required to fully realize the marvelous development potential. A classic Malconsorts of power and depth. Drink 2027+

Domaine Sylvain Cathiard

Sylvain Cathiard is one of the top growers in Vosne Romanée, a region not shy of exceptional talent. He only has around 4.25 hectares of vines, therefore the quantity that he makes is particularly small. Traditionally, Burgundy domaines are renowned for being minute in size, and he is definitely amongst the smallest. In addition, he has some of the most exceptional vineyards, which read like a Who's Who list of the Côte de Nuits, many of which are located next to grand crus sites. This combination is lethal for allocations. Too little wine with too many open hands all waiting for their fair share. SInce 2011 his talented son, Sébastien, has been running the domaine.

Region

Vosne-Romanée

The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
