94-96 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "There are 7½ barrels of the 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts Christiane this year from 0.48 hectares of vines tucked into La Tache. Ever since this prize plot came into Etienne de Montille’s hands, he has felt that it creates a different Pinot Noir to the regular Malconsorts and I can vouch for that myself having compared the two cuvees blind over three of four vintages in Paris, back in 2009. They both undergo identical vinification. It has a wonderful, exuberant bouquet laden with vivacious orange sorbet, strawberry preserve, minerals and incense like fireworks across the sky. The palate is medium-bodied, streamlined with very fine lithe tannins accompanied by a fine silver thread of acidity. It feels more compact, perhaps denser and more imposing than the regular Malconsorts and delivers a long persistent finish to complete a swarthy Malconsorts Christiane that is suffused with grandiloquence. Tempted? (NM)" (12/2013)
