2018 Domaine Dujac Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Aux Malconsorts"

SKU #1502933 96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Perfumed, refined and showing none of the firmness that Aux Malconsorts can exhibit in its youth, this is balanced, nuanced and spicy, with 75% whole bunches adding some freshness and texture, all framed by 70% new wood. Not a blockbuster wine by any means, but this has considerable class, poise and palate length with succulent red berry fruit to the fore. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The fireworks begin in earnest with the 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts, a brilliant young wine that bursts from the glass with aromas of cherries, red berries and exotic spices, complemented by delicate top notes of blood orange and peonies and framed by a deft touch of creamy new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, with a deep and multidimensional core, lively acids and a long, resonant finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru has an extravagant bouquet with brambly red fruit laced with shucked oyster shell and a touch of seaweed. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannins, lightly spiced with a subtle ash-like note towards the composed finish. This has great backbone that should guarantee its longevity. A quintessential Dujac/Malconsorts. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2020)

93 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Malconsorts chez Seysses is more exotic and musky in personality than the Beaumonts this year, but at least based on the showing at the time of my visit, there is not quite the customary distance between the two wines. The bouquet is very flashy out of the blocks, offering up scents of sappy black raspberries, sweet blackberries, raw cocoa, plenty of musky floral tones, new oak and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and more reserved in personality than the flamboyant nose suggests, with a sappy core of black fruit, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, tangy and focused finish.

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is even spicier with its mélange of subdued but elegant and pure aromas that speaks of red and dark currant, violet, rose petal and exotic spice nuances, all of which is trimmed in subtle wood. There is first-rate intensity to the muscular full-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that also partially buffers the very firm, serious and austere finish that is shaped by raspy but not drying tannins. This will likely never be an elegant wine but it does seem quite promising if you're prepared to be patient. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark More floral than the Échezeaux just tasted. Gorgeous scent on the palate, red fruit, ripe, concentrated and so lively and fresh. Smooth if firm texture. Beautifully lifted as well as generous in the vintage. 17.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

K&L Notes

95-98 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Colour has not quite settled, but the nose is lovely, with wild cherry aromatics, roses and peonies and an absolutely sumptuous weight of fruit on the palate. Super sensual and brilliantly."
