The palate has excellent tannin maturity and depth. A bold, explosive finish. This is exceptional. This elegant vintage has delivered a wine with real clarity and detail. But still needs some time. Try from 2024.

Smoky, with fine depth to the cherry, floral, spice and mineral flavors. The vibrant structure keeps this focused and long, while the fine overall balance and supportive tannins will allow this to develop. Best from 2021...   Smoky, with fine depth to the cherry, floral, spice and mineral flavors. The vibrant structure keeps this focused and long, while the fine overall balance and supportive tannins will allow this to develop. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,500 cases made, 300 cases imported. — BS

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts 1er Cru has a slightly lactic, dark chocolate tinged bouquet that needs to develop more definitions and terroir expression.

The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, quite oaky in style and that rather makes the finish more generic than it might have been. There is some nice fruit here, but at the moment the winemaking is shouting over it. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. -- Neal Martin
