Wine & Spirits

Flavors of black plum surround this wine’s red cherry core, hinting at the influence of 30 percent cabernet sauvignon in this predominantly sangiovese blend. The wine rested in tonneaux for 16 months, picking up notes of vanilla and spice that swirl through the juicy fruit flavors. It gains volume with time in the glass as its raspy tannins begin to soften. Decant it for veal Bolognese.

The 2015 Veneroso, Ghizzano'sSangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, is wonderfully inviting. Soft contours and radiant fruit add to its considerable allure. Hints of sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and cedar add lovely savory character throughout. This is such a pretty wine.

Chockablock with blackberry, black currant and plum fruit, this brooding red also displays leather, earth and iron notes. Though dense, this offers vivid acidity that drives the long aftertaste.

Vinous

The 2012 Veneroso wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth and resonance. Today the flavors are naturally quite primary, but there is a lot to like in this Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. Dark plum, cherry pit, mint, spice and licorice blossom as this succulent, expressive wine shows off its personality. Sweet floral and spice notes add finesse on the silky, perfumed finish. The 2012 could use more time in bottle to develop further complexity, but it is quite delicious, even today.

A ripe and agreeably fresh nose offers up aromas of violet, red currant and earth, all of which is trimmed in whiffs of abundant spice as well as enough oak to point out. The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is more elegant than the Grèves while delivering very good if not truly exceptional depth and persistence on the bitter cherry-inflected finish.

James Suckling

From the heart of the appellation, this has a lot of violet-fruit aromas with a poached-cherry and red-plum core and deep-set spice notes, as well as chalky elements. The theme continues to a chalky texture from the limestone bedrock with fine, compressed tannins and bright red cherries.

90-92 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Volnay Les Caillerets Ancienne Cuvée Carnot 1er Cru (the first parcel purchased by the Bouchard family in 1775) has a well-defined, intense bouquet of black cherries, bilberry and light violet aromas. The medium-bodied palate is finely proportioned, offering crisp tannin, layers of pure blackberry, raspberry and brown spice, and a touch of truffle right on the finish. –NM

The nose has attractive rose and spicy red-cherry aromas, leading to a smoothly succulent palate that carries plenty of fruit flesh and depth. Great wine for early drinking.

Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 2018 2017

January 2019

89-90 Points

Vinous

The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has quite an elegant bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit combining with finely integrated new oak (25%). The palate is smooth on the entry and quite plush in style, with good depth, though it is missing some terroir expression on the finish. –NM
