Charles van Canneyt's 0.5ha block in Les Suchots was planted in 1910, which makes it the oldest at the domaine. In a vintage that stumped some producers, he has made a beautifully delineated wine that's textured and nuanced, effortlessly integrating its 40% new wood and showing a wonderful brightness and purity of fruit. Drinking Window 2022-2030. (TA)
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. (NM)
The 2017 Suchots from Charles van Canneyt is an archetypical example of this fine terroir, offering up a deep and black fruity bouquet of cassis, dark berries, French Roast, gamebird, dark soil tones, a nice framing of vanillin oak and a smoky topnote redolent of bonfires. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and a bit more primary than the Beaumonts, with a sappy core of black fruit, excellent soil signature, ripe, seamless tannins and impressive length and grip on the very well balanced finish. Fine juice.
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. This is a successful vintage for Charles Van Canneyt at Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat. The wines are supple and charming, gaining in-depth, seriousness and complexity as one ascends the hierarchy of appellations and vine age. After the concentrated and compelling 2015s and 2016s, both vintages built for the cellar despite their decidedly different styles, 2017 represents a high quality but more immediate, structurally open-knit year for the Domaine, and for impatient consumers, that is no bad thing. The domaine's roster of appellations will be familiar to readers by now, with the exception of a promising new Meursault from the lieu-dit Clos des Ecoles—a parcel formerly farmed by the Domaine Coche-Dury.

Here too there is a touch of reduction present on what appears to be slightly riper aromas that also display spice wisps but not much else. 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 or complex as the Beaux Monts but the balance is better as is the length. 2029+
