DescriptionSylvain Cathiard Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts, Cote de Nuits, France 2006
BURGHOUNDWhile there is a trace of secondary development present on the otherwise very fresh and layered nose that is composed of ripe and overtly spicy black pinot fruit. There is a beautifully seductive texture to the supple, rich, round and strikingly pure mouth coating medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract on the impressively long and balanced finish. This is a big yet unusually refined Malconsorts that is sufficiently supple that it could easily be enjoyed now though for my taste it should continue to improve over the next 3 to 5 years. In a word, lovely.
ROBERT PARKERThe 2006 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts from Sylvain Cathiard really blossomed in the glass, unfurling to reveal notes of plums, dark chocolate, rich soil, burning embers and some savory and hard-to-define bass notes, its new oak nicely digested at age 12. On the palate, the wine starts out a little foursquare but opens up to become quite expansive, more taut and controlled than the 2005 En Orveaux tasted the following day, with fine-grained but not yet melted tannins, a deep core of fruit and a long finish. An excellent Malconsorts with a full decade ahead of it.
