Must have missed this extra bottle in the cellar. PnP. Cork wet about half way up. Light red with slight browning. Shy but classic nose of spices, sandalwood, aromatic herbs. Medium weight on the palate with lovely texture and a reticence in the finish which may dissipate with more air, or it may be beginning to dry out. Very nice with simple grilled halibut and raddichio with belgian endive. Good QPR for Vosne.
PnP. Translucent red; initially: airy nose hinting at spice and herbs. On the palate middle-weight red fruits with some tightness/tannins/drying on the finish. Will see how this develops with air given some of the comments. The nose on this improves quite markedly with air; however, the finish becomes more intrusive with drying tannins. Drink up. Stored corked over night room T; this has markedly improved with the tannins integrating nicely into a more intense red fruit profile. Perhaps needed more time!? Given this experience would decant.

(Potel Nicolas Vosne-Romanée Les Petits Monts) An understated nose of faint red berries. Whilst this is also a little tight, it’s showing more than the Malconsorts - quite wide an interesting if undemonstrative - no negatives.
