June 2016

Here too the wood treatment is reasonably subtle and easily allows the ultra-spicy aromas of cassis, plum and Asian-style tea to be appreciated. The suave, mouth coating and wonderfully seductive medium weight flavors possess exceptionally good richness while delivering excellent depth and length on the impeccably well-balanced finish. This is textbook Suchots and while it is built-to-age it should also drink well young if desired.

Premier Cru Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots

January 2017

89-91

Vinous

Dark red with ruby highlights. More liqueur-like and extreme than the Gevrey villages that preceded it in my tasting, offering notes of tropical dark chocolate and licorice. Quite concentrated and plush but a bit high-toned; shows a chocolate element that I associate with this premier cru but today I don't find the class of Suchots. Weber, who does not vinify this cuvée, prefers the delicacy of the 2014 version even if this is sweeter. I find it a bit chunky and medicinal, with the tannins slightly dry. In need of time to harmonize--or was this fruit simply picked a bit too late?
