Les Suchots combines the richness of Le Richebourg with the delicacy of Romanee Saint-Vivant, its two neighbors to the south. It is velvety yet refined, with ripe fruit aromas, exotic spices and oak leading to an extended finish.
"Bright, dark red. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, mocha and cocoa. Dense, dry and sappy, with terrific intensity and inner-palate lift to the flavors of dark berries, black cherry, minerals and bitter chocolate. For all its concentration, this boasts outstanding finesse. Terrific tightly coiled wine with superb back-end perfume. The noble tannins are in perfect harmony with the wine's material.
International Wine Cellar
"The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots boasts a gorgeous, centered core of fruit that is remarkable for its sheer vibrancy and clarity. Plums, black cherries, spices and menthol are some of the many nuances that flesh out in the glass. The finish is full of Suchots character in its rich tapestry of aromas and flavors. This is a kaleidoscopic wine full of personality. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.
The Wine Advocate
"Moderate wood sets off exuberantly spicy aromas of plum, cassis and black raspberry. There is an ultra-sophisticated mouth feel to the silky-textured medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with so much extract that they culminate in an incredibly suave yet balanced finish that is built to age. Really lovely and a classic Suchots.
