- Tasting Notes
Here too there is a touch of wood surrounding the even spicier and more deeply pitched dark currant aromas that display Asian-tea and sandalwood nuances. The supple, delicious and nicely vibrant medium weight flavors possess a succulent, even fleshy mid-palate, while displaying fine richness on the lingering finish. This isn’t quite as refined as the Beaux Monts but it’s still very good.

From a parcel planted in 1910, the 2017 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is more brooding and reserved, offering up a complex bouquet of dark berries, licorice, spices and black tea. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, layered and satiny on the attack, with a deep core that’s framed by fine-grained but firm tannins that assert themselves on the mouthwateringly mordant finish.

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has a beguiling bouquet of precise black cherries, wild strawberry and a hint of black olive, the mineral element tucked in just underneath. The palate is beautifully balanced with a sappy entry, sharing the marine/oyster shell influence of the Les Beaumonts but displaying great density and grip on the finish. It delivers all you wish for from a Suchots.
