From vines located just below Richebourg on the other side of the lane, the 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots has a precise, tightly coiled bouquet that takes time to unfurl in the glass, reluctantly offering enticing raspberry, bergamot and Earl Grey. The palate is well-balanced with ripe, fleshy tannins counterbalanced by crisp acidity. It clams up a little towards the finish, although bottle age will allow it to mellow and unwind. Great mineralite on the aftertaste comes through with aeration to cap everything off nicely.
