The Wine:
Between Romanée Saint Vivant, Echézeaux and Richebourg...this vineyard neighbours on a few of the greatest wines in the world. A number of respected experts consider Les Suchots to be among the very finest 1st Crus from Vosne Romanée. The freshness of the fruit is preserved with harvesting manually. Vinification is precise, with pumping over and light punching down to highlight the characteristics of the terroir. Aging lasts on average 15 months in oak barrels, with 40 to 45% new barrels, then 3 months in vats before bottling.

The nose is initially discreet and then opens up to notes of red fruit, flowers and spices. The palate is well structured and full-bodied. The ample and long finish, with mineral notes, reveals fine and delicate tannins. A wine of great purity.

The Review:
Stuart Pigott, - 95pts
"Fragrant and refined with a delicate earthiness underlining the sour cherry fruit, this has excellent concentration and very fine tannins that drive the long graceful finish. Already delicious, but with an excellent future ahead of it. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold."
