A highly spiced nose that is notably ripe but much fresher than that of the Beaux Monts features aromas of dark berry and plum that complement well the rich, supple and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess well-integrated tannins on the complex, balanced and lingering finish. This is very Suchots in that there is a generosity to the velvety mid-palate yet this is a wine of admirable class and grace. *Outstanding*
At the time of my visit the 2009 Suchots was really showing well. The nose is deep, pure and nascently complex, as it offers up a properly reserved blend of cassis, black raspberry, espresso, game, woodsmoke, very complex soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, very pure and quite structured, with a rock solid core of fruit, superb length and grip and plenty of ripe, very suave tannins perking up the tangy finish. Suchots can often be a rather forward and flamboyant premier cru, and when it is reserved like the 2009 Jadot version, I always take this as a very, very positive sign for its future evolution. A superb premier cru in the making.
The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots presents a more linear, mineral-driven voice of Vosne. This is quite a bit more taut and focused than the Beaux Monts. It is also less immediate, and will require a bit more patience. Floral notes meld into dark red fruit and anise in this structured yet feminine Burgundy. (AG)
Very pure, liqueur-like aromas of red berries, botanical herbs, mint, spices and flowers. Dense, supple, sweet and concentrated, with a lovely pliant texture to the silky yet firm-edged flavors of strawberry, minerals and spices. Very ripe but not at all roasted. Finishes very long and perfumed, with a serious tannic spine and a light touch. (ST)
Les Suchots is located just north of Romanée-St-Vivant and Richebourg, where Jadot manages 0.75 acres of vines between 40 and 50 years old. The wine is long on floral fruit and silky layers of tannin, cushioned by its dark cherry fruit concentration into a firmness that still feels soft. There’s an earthy, rooty tension in the tannins that suggests this needs cellar time to grow expansive.
Sweet berry fruit, spice and dense, dusty tannins are the hallmarks of this compact red, which is tight, yet with a kernel of cherry buried. (BS, Web-2012)
