Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 94
Vinous
The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru, matured in 45% new oak, has a pure bouquet of black cherries, raspberry and crushed strawberry, nicely focused and quite sensual in style. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannin, rather masculine in style for a Les Suchots but very tensile toward the mineral-driven, quite voluminous finish. There is just 17% whole bunches here.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
BH 92
Burghound.com
There is just enough reduction to shave the top notes from the softly oaky nose of floral, spice and dark raspberry. There is good richness and volume to the velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors that are surprisingly robust on the mildly tangy if solidly lingering finish. This is presently somewhat awkward but I suspect that it will ultimately come together.
Barrel Sample: 90-92
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This is showing some reduction initially, featuring earthy and animal notes that give way to flavors of smoky cherry, violet, iron and spice. A beefy red, with a long, earth-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2040.

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.
