2005 Domaine Moillard Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Malconsorts"

SKU #1143944 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is a really lovely wine and while it is initially a bit timid and reserved, with air it really blossoms and puts on weight. After 20 minutes or so the natural spice character of Vosne becomes much more apparent on the ripe dark berry fruit and earth suffused nose. There is good richness to the focused, intense and moderately powerful middle weight flavors that exhibit more than a trace of minerality on the impressively well-balanced and lingering finish. This is perhaps not a truly classic example of Malconsorts as it's not particularly muscular or robust yet it is harmonious and overall, I very much liked it. Though it could certainly be enjoyed now, it is still on the way up and I would advise continuing to hold for further development. Inner quote mark (12/2013)

K&L Notes

Lovely and complex on the palate, with substantial structure, a note of unsweetened cocoa, and a very pretty bright red fruit character. As it opens, it gets more mid-palate weight and richness. Attractive sweet fruit, robed in a more serious vein of youthful structure and tannin. beautiful spice. As is often the case with Malconsorts at 5-10 years, this has a serious, mineral-driven side. It is clearly an apt candidate for as long as you would like in your cellar, but delicious tonight with a rack of lamb or better yet, a rack of venison, with a truffle jus. We found this one in the cellars of Moillard, and arranged to pick it up in a refrigerated van, transfer it to a refrigerated container and deliver it to our door in perfect condition. One of the best Burgundy vintages in memory, one of the best Premier Cru vineyards in the storied village of Vosne Romanee, perfect provenance, and yesterday's pricing. If you snooze on this one, you will surely lose! (Keith Wollenberg, K&L Burgundy Buyer)
