Slowly oxidized for about 1.5 hours and consumed over the next two. I really enjoyed this wine. Extremely inviting depth and complexity. Great lush tannins provided an extremely velvety mouthfeel and helped lead the wine seamlessly into a great finish. Fanstastic floral profile with an ever-present spiciness that really made this wine a pleasure to drink.
This wine was continually evolving in the glass, and in retrospect, kind of wish we had let this one open up or awhile longer. Regardless, a really enjoyable experience and introduction to the vineyard and producer.

(Potel Nicolas Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsorts) Deep ruby core with a cherry red rim. The nose starts with a blast of blackberry fruit, eventually settles to a mix of minty red fruit pies. Very concentrated fruit, with perfect acidity and long, grippy, but velvetty tannin. The mid-palate starts a little soupy but gradually becomes more and more distinct - tons of complexity. This wine was drunk after the good Engel villages Vosne and has so much extra dimension that it's hard to believe it's not a grand cru.
