The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots has a distinct marine influence on the nose, shucked oyster shells and iodine complementing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, gentle but insistent grip, very good depth with the exuberance and precocity you expect from this vineyard. It should age with panache for 15-20 years.
With so many grand cru vineyards in this small village, even the premier crus make excellent wines. This is a case in point, a powerful wine packed with tannins, dense black fruit and a solid structure. The future looks good, with opulent fruit about to come through the framework. Drink this wine from 2023. (RV)
In contrast to the prior two wines this is aromatically much more reserved though aggressive swirling eventually liberates Asian spice box, tea, plum and violet scents. There is fine richness to the very suave and highly seductive medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundant amounts of dry extract that impart a sappy texture to the lingering and solidly complex finale. This is both classy and stylish and built to reward medium plus-term aging. (91-93)/2027+
Some sappy,graphite elements on the nose with a quite bold expression of red cherries. Boldly stated tannins and plenty of structure here. Purchased grapes. Try from 2022.
Brooding, oaky, cherry nose, stern and reticent. A rich attack leads into a weighty and opulent palate with firm tannins. At present it lacks some finesse but it's powerful, bold and almost fiery. Drinking Window 2019-2030.
Medium red. Ripe aromas of raspberry and cocoa powder. Sweet and plush on entry, then a bit clenched in the middle, showing a medicinal reserve as well as a faint greenness to its raspberry and dark chocolate flavors complicated by spices and herbs. The wine's green element has a drying effect on the granular tannins. An awkward showing today--and very different in style from the wines vinified by Frédéric Barniet at Jadot
