RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots includes 100% whole cluster with 50% new oak. It has a refined, elegant, mild-mannered bouquet with pure raspberry preserve, cranberry and subtle tobacco scents that unroll with aeration, though never quite delivering the opulence synonymous with the premier cru. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle but insistent grip on the entry. In some ways, the whole bunch addition lends this structure and shifts it toward, say, a Malconsorts in style (not to suggest that is necessarily a bad thing!). Linear and precise, it will require 7 to 10 years in bottle to really show its best. The bottom line is that this is one of the finest Les Suchots that I tasted in 2016.
Barrel Sample: 93-95

Unlike the vineyards close to the winery in Prémeaux-Prissey, Les Suchots escaped the frosts in 2016. Fermented entirely with stems, with 50% new oak, this is further evidence of the improvements at this domaine under Géraldine Godot. Savoury, spicy and intense, with finegrained tannins and lovely balance. 2024-32.

Smoky, with pretty rose, cherry, sandalwood and spice flavors underneath. Firm and lean, yet remains elegant as this winds down on the lingering finish. Best from 2021 through 2038

Vinous
(100% vendange entier; 50% new oak; very little frost here): Healthy medium red. Deep, brooding aromas of black raspberry, licorice, Asian spices and cocoa powder. Very rich, dense, slightly high-toned wine with a slight leathery, gamey quality to its dark raspberry, spice and chocolate flavors. Finishes with fine-grained dusty tannins that spread out horizontally to coat the palate. Quite rich and classically dry, although I'd still like to have seen a bit more energy and definition.
Barrel Sample: 90-92

An exuberantly spicy nose flashes notes of Asian-style tea, black cherry and sandalwood, all of which is trimmed in noticeable oak influence. Here too there is a lovely texture to the equally succulent, round and sappy flavors that coat the palate and particularly so on the moderately austere and slightly warm finale that displays sneaky good length. This impressive effort is shaped by fine-grained tannins and overall, this is very Vosne in style.

This is the village for the most die-hard Burgundy fanatics. Vosne-Romanée has for many hundreds of years been the source of the most sought-after Pinot noir in Burgundy. The village claims six Grands Crus—and some of the most famous at that—but in other villages where owners manage tiny parcels or a few rows of any one vineyard, monopolies dominate the Grands Crus of Vosne-Romanee.

Of these monopolies, Domaine Romanee-Conti (DRC) reigns supreme, claiming not only more total vineyard area than any other producer, but outright owning the entirety of two of the Grands Crus and a majority of two others. In its full possession are naturally Romanée-Conti, as well as La Tâche. DRC also owns most of Richebourg and Romanée-St-Vivant. The final two, La Grande Rue and La Romanée are completely owned by other other produers: François Lamarche and Comte Liger Belair, respectively.

While one could spend a lifetime on the puzzles of land ownership in Burgundy, the point is that Vosne-Romanee contains the most valuable pieces of vineyard real estate in the world. Pinot noir from any of its vineyards—especially from within its 27ha of Grand Cru or 58 ha of Premier Cru land—is going to rank among the best.

The most outstanding wines from this village have everything: finesse and elegance coupled with the body and sturdiness for incredibly long aging ability. They are intensely floral and exotically spiced. Beautifully ripe, complex and ephemeral throughout, they are robust, yet fine-grained in texture. These wines will stay gorgeous for the long haul.
