Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots 2017
Widely considered the greatest of all Burgundy's villages, this wine is a classic Vosne-Romanée, elegant and silky with great finesse and succulence, with a supple mouth-feel and great balance.
Les Suchots ' consists of two continuous parcels between Romanée Saint-Vivant and Richebourg on the South side, and 'Les Echezeaux ' on the North side.
The 2017 vintage was very dry, but was relatively cool. Luckily, the frost damage was minimal and a combination of moderate day temperatures and cool evenings resulted in relatively good yield and wonderful flavour concentration.
The grapes bear small little dark red berries. The bunches are destemmed; they macerate in open vats during 4 weeks helping this subtle terroir to reveal itself. After devatting, the wines are aged in oak barrels during 18 months.
