The lieu-dit Les Malconsorts lies southwest of the village of Vosne-Romanée, on the steeply sloping hillside (9%). The plot varies in altitude from 254 to 278 meters. The lieu-dit faces due east.
The soil changes from east to west. The eastern part contains blunt limestone fragments, with some small oyster shells. In the middle of the lieu-dit, the soil is very stony, with angular Premeaux limestone fragments. At the top, angular limestone gravel is frequently present.
Three different types of substratum underlie Les Malconsorts. In the eastern part, there are Ostrea Acuminata marls (with small oyster shells), with Premeaux limestone in the central part, while bedded limestone scree (grèzes litées) covers the slope to the west.
This site can often produce wines that only show their full potential at the end of élevage, and it certainly seems that I somewhat underestimated the potential of Dujac's 2020 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts from barrel, as it showed even better from bottle. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cassis and plums mingled with notions of sweet spices and vine smoke, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with huge depth at the core, powdery tannins and a long, resonant finish. While this remains a somewhat reserved wine, its potential quality is much easier to grasp.
