Winemaker Notes
“Finesse, richness, complexity and harmony all come together and unite to show how complete this exceptional wine is. An iron hand in a velvet glove, it describes the fullness of the Pinot Noir with exceptional distinction, expressing a taut nervosity before resonating with richness and elegance. Its aromas evolve harmoniously with age. When young, the wine offers floral notes mingled with raspberry, morello cherries and blackcurrant. With time the aromas evolve and develop towards spices, liquorice, undergrowth and leather.”

Rated 95 Points James Suckling

"Fragrant and refined with a delicate earthiness underlining the sour cherry fruit, this has excellent concentration and very fine tannins that drive the long graceful finish. Already delicious, but with an excellent future ahead of it. From biodynamically grown grapes."
Rated 94 Points Jasper Morris

"A little deeper in crimson colouring, and certainly the cleanest bouquet to date. This is lively, a little orange blossom in with cherry and strawberry notes, middleweight but with persistence, this will make an attractive Suchots for the medium term. Drink from 2027-2033."

Rated 94 Points Vinous

"The 2021 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru is quite backward on the nose, maybe just missing a little joie-de-vivre at the moment, a bit "sulky" compared to other crus from the Domaine. The palate is much more expressive: edgy red berry fruit, a lovely touch of white pepper and thyme, in fact, you could imagine there being 10-20% stems when in fact, there are none. Persistent on the finish, this Suchots seems to be intending on biding its time."
