Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots, 2011, Domaine De L'Arlot
Note: from vines planted in 1950
A very spicy nose of plum, earth, violet and ripe red and black currants leads to velvet-textured middle weight flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that imparts a sappy quality to the moderately complex but impressively long finish.
This has the underlying material to develop well and I have found over the years that age is typically kind to this wine. Well worth considering.
