Drinking It Again - 1976 Vosne-Romanée Les Malconsort, Domaine Clos Frantin

I opened the first bottle out of a six bottle case three months ago. This time I took a bottle with just a 1,5 cm ullage but with no label. The cork came up in one piece and the aroma out of the bottle was beautiful!

Right out of the bottle this has a deep nose of moist undergrowth with lots of mushrooms. When it unfolds in the glass there are gorgeous aromas of dried raspberries, dark cherries, worn leather, fried herbs and a touch of coffee powder. This one is deeper and darker than the previous one. Very, very good.
The taste is mature and velvety with notes of raspberries, cherries, liquorice, dried mushrooms and leather. The finish is long and fine with a salivating acidity. Yet again, the content on the bottle just vanished...
