Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Malconsorts"

Domaine du Clos Frantin


Côte de Nuits


AOC Premier Cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

"Les Malconsorts" is an exceptional Premier Cru from Vosne-Romanée. We are lucky to own 4.75 acres of vines in this jewel of a Climat located immediately adjacent to some mythical plots. As the crow flies, Romanée-Conti is less than 400 metres away and Richebourg less than 600!
This Climat's name is thought to refer to legal disputes between litigants who did not exhibit fair behaviour - hence the "mal" - to gain ownership of this magical piece of land that they held as common property ("consorts" in Latin).
Lying adjacent to "La Tâche", "Les Malconsorts" is located in an area that is known to receive a particularly high amount of sunshine.


This wine expresses the exceptional character of a great terroir combined with a great grape variety. Its fine, complex nose features notes of red and black fruit (cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant) combined with delicate nuances of oak and subtle hints of spices. On the palate, this wine's smooth, full-bodied texture is supported by elegant tannic structure. An exceptional, classy wine that is endowed with remarkable length.
On the palate, all the crispiness of Pinot Noir with very pleasing, smooth, mouth-filling tannic texture.
