Following the exalted 2009 Burgundy vintage, no one really expected the 2010 releases to fare as well. But our panel found plenty of high-quality village wines and premiers crus. See the top Vosne-Romanée 2010 results here...

Decanter average score: 18.75pts/20 (95+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 18.5 Anthony Hanson 19 Jasper Morris MW 18.5
Malconsorts is a lustrous addition to the Dujac range, acquired when the Thomas-Moillard domaine was bought jointly by Dujac and De Montille in 2005. The vineyard is located on the mid-slope between La Tâche and the Nuits-Saint-Georges border. The wines are aged in a substantial proportion of new oak, although lightly toasted. The 2008 and 2009 vintages of Malconsorts from Dujac were superb – this is clearly their equal, combining opulence and limpidity. The panel was unanimous in its acclaim.
Stephen Brook: ‘Lush, brooding, oaky cherry nose, opulent fruit. Rich and concentrated, dense but not too extracted. Has limpidity, with fine acidity and zest. A luxurious style, a sumptuous texture and a long, fresh finish.’
Anthony Hanson MW: ‘Ripe, with fine complexity, a lovely nose; full bodied, creamy. Fruit and structure melt together; elegant, firmly tannic length.’
Jasper Morris MW: ‘A perfumed bouquet mixing deep red fruit and spicy oak, along with crushed strawberries of some whole bunches used in the fermentation. Lively on the palate and leaves a beautiful perfume at the back. A delicious and intriguing wine.’
