Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru les Suchots

2018
France
Burgundy

This vineyard is less than half a hectare in an exceptional spot, circled by Romanée-Saint-Vivant and the Richebourg to the south, and by the Echézeaux to the north. The average age of the vines on this vineyard is between 60 and 70 years old.

The wine is fermented 100% whole-cluster and aged in 30% new oak.

"The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Grands Suchots 1er Cru offers very perfumed, rose-petal-infused red currant and cranberry fruit that manages to convey the precocity of this vineyard while maintaining delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and finely tuned acidity. Very elegant in style, but I would like a little more rondeur and sumptuousness to develop on the finish. Therefore I will be prudent with my score for now."
