Tasting Notes

No rating available. Tasting note from Wineberserkers Forum June 2019 - Joshua Kates: Reviving this thread, as I opened the 1999 D. Laurent Vosne-Romanee Aux Malconsorts Serie Rare last night. Extraordinary wine. Probably the best red burgundy I've had this year (and I've been fortunate to have some good ones at La Paulee and elsewhere). big whiff of kirsch and button mushrooms, with red dusty notes and hints of violet and cardamom. With raspberry and brambly spice notes front and center, at first sinuous, linear, then broadening out to a long, wide, mouth-coating finish (gums and cheeks) including notable (albeit welcome) acidity, and topnotes of baking spice, with no tannins that are obvious to me. Really silky mouthfeel, perhaps owing to the notorious 200% oak regimen. Could drink this all day, all night. For me in a perfect place--still good fruit, but leaving room for the other dimensions, now integrated and prominent.
