Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots, 2009, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: from vines of 15 to 50 years of age
An elegant, pure and ultra-spicy if discreet nose is both quite floral and high-toned with primarily red berry fruit aromas in evidence. The seductively textured and wonderfully intense flavors display a subtle mineral-streak that extends to the naturally sweet, long and palate staining finish.
This genuinely stunning effort is not as tight as the Forêts and should drink well a few years earlier
