Bouchard Père & Fils | Burgundy, France
Premier Cru Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots
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.
