2016 Maison Albert Bichot Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts Domaine du Clos Frantin

Cellar tracker community- 93 points (as of 4/30/19)

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 90 points (rated 1/19/19) - Domaines Albert Bichot Vosne Romanée "Les Malconsorts" 1er Cru Red) A relatively deeply pitched nose offers plenty of floral and spice elements along with notes of plum, dark cherry and a touch of Asian-style tea that are trimmed in discreet but not invisible wood. As is usually the case there is excellent volume and a taut muscularity to the sappy broad-shouldered flavors that flash good depth though the austere bitter cherry pit-inflected finish that is markedly compact and fairly short. While that in and of itself is not a flaw, it's not immediately clear that this is necessarily going to better harmonize with time even though I have indicated about when I estimate the tannins will have mostly subsided. (Drink starting 2031)
