Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots, 2007, Domaine Arnoux Lachaux
2007 Vosne-Romanée “Les Suchots”: (from a .45 ha parcel situated at the very top of the vineyard).
Wonderfully spicy, pure and almost wafting aromas of primarily black fruit but fruit that carries ample spice elements to it that are also picked up by the suave, velvety and lightly mineral infused medium weight plus flavors brimming with dry extract on the mouth coating finish where a touch of wood resurfaces.
This is not as impressively scaled as the Echézeaux or as powerful but it’s actually finer and more seductively textured. A great Suchots.
