Lucien Le Moine Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Aux Malconsorts” 2016 (92 VM)
“Dark red; a bit disturbed. Less pure on the nose than the last two Vosne premier crus, hinting at a leesy quality. Then chewy and ripe on the palate, conveying an impression of brooding energy to the flavors of dark chocolate, minerals, herbs, earth and fresh tobacco leaf. But somewhat disjointed today and not particularly showy. Today the wine’s tannins come across as slightly dry, as the mid-palate still needs to fill in.”

Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Aux Malconsorts”
In two decades of work, Lucien Le Moine has become one of the most talked about Burgundy producers, making some of the most sought after wines from the region. The approach is extreme – two people, together doing everything by hand, working with a dazzling array of Burgundy’s great terroirs.
