Remoriquet Vosne-Romanee 1er cru Malconsorts, 2018
Type: Red Wine
Grape(s): Pinot Noir
Wine Region: Vosne Romanée, France
Tasting Notes: Ripe fruit over spices is frequently the main ingredient of the bouquet, modified by the presence of strawberry, raspberry, bilberry, or blackcurrant. These refined and well-blended aromas evolve with age into cherries-in-brandy, preserved fruits, leather and fur, and gamey/woodland scents. On the palate the wine is velvety and distinguished - the Pinot Noir at the top of its form. The powerfully tannic but nevertheless perfectly smooth build of this spicy, opulent, and meaty wine inclines it towards strongly-flavoured meats with a markedly fibrous consistency which the wine can tame and envelop.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Good quality poultry, lamb (patiently oven-roasted), and roast feathered game are easy first choices. But a thick cut of lean, firm-textured beef will match the wine’s fullness, while spicy couscous with poultry will be equally delighted.
