    A fabulous Malconsorts, with delicious flavours of freshly picked raspberries. A harmonious and opulent style, with grace and volume. Finishes with succulence and length. Truly fabulous.

    Score: 95-97

    The 2012 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Malconsorts comes from a small 0.14-hectare of vines planted in 1950. This year it was reduced from three to two and a half barrels. It has a broody, intense but entrancing bouquet with dark plum, raspberry and mineral scents that are beautifully placed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. There is plenty of intense red and black fruit dialed into this nascent Malconsorts that is almost regimented in style, but with a wonderful linear finish that is compelling. Superb.

    Score: 94

    (from a .5 ha parcel; note that in 2012 this was bottled exclusively in magnum where 300 were produced - my predicted range is necessarily based on this format). Like the Charmes this is wonderfully exuberant with an overtly spicy nose of both red and blue pinot fruit, floral elements and a hint of oak. There is good volume and excellent minerality to the well-delineated, powerful and deep medium-bodied flavors that deliver first-rate persistence. Note that the supporting tannins are dense but fine and this will require many years of bottle age to resolve the tannins. As excellent as the description makes this wine sound I had the same niggling concern here that I did with the Suchots, which is to say that the nose may go secondary relatively early and thus predicting when might be the optimal time to open one of these magnums is not easy to predict. My score offers the benefit of the doubt though here too I include a cautionary question mark. Drink 2034+

Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noëllat

The Hudelots are an ancient Burgundian family whose ancestry can be traced back to Chambolle since before the French Revolution. Needless to say, wine has been in their blood for almost as long. Alain Huedlot began his wine career in 1954 working for his father and other local growers. At the ripe young age of 20, he started renting vineyards from his family in Chambolle Musigny until eventually receiving other small parcels from his father. Following a passionate and whirlwind romance with the granddaughter of Charles Noellat, he married despite protests from her family. This controversial union ensured additional vineyards despite a harrying and lengthy legal battle. Today the domaine owns a total of 10 well-situated hectares, which are split over 5 communes. Alain Hudelot’s grandson Charles Van Canneyt is a man on a mission. Having arrived at the domaine from Champagne only six years ago, he is already considered one of the brightest young talents in the region. These wines are wonderful examples of traditionally styled Burgundy - superbly pure and focused with an undeniable sense of terroir.

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.
