Location, Location, Location: Two top 2016 Vosne Premier Crus from Domaine Rene Cacheux.

 

Cacheux Rene 2016 1ers Header
As they say: location, location, location....

Cacheux was once a single domaine in Vosne-Romanée, but in 2005 two sisters married two brothers and the domaine was split. Today there is Domaine Jacques Cacheux and Domaine Rene Cacheux.

I visited Domaine Rene Cacheux last Wednesday to taste their 2016's. It is a tiny domaine of just 3.26 hectares but they have some lovely vineyards in and around Vosne-Romanee. The two jewels are the Premier Crus Les Suchots and Les Beaux-Monts.

I tasted the complete range but Gerald advised me that due to the small 2016 vintage only two wines were still available - Les Suchots and Les Beaux-Monts. 

That works for me. After all, they are two top 1ers, perhaps only trumped by Cros Parantoux and Les Malconsorts.

What makes Rene's holdings even better is their superb location within the climats. His Suchots comprises two parcels - one beside Romanee-St-Vivant, the other adjoining Echezeaux. His single parcel of Beaux Monts also boasts a superior position right up against Echezeaux Les Loachausses.

From these climats Rene produces two terrific wines.
To introduce the domaine to our portfolio we offer both wines at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount. It is not often Les Suchots and Les Beaux Monts are priced under $200.00 a bottle. Together they form a very interesting Pair. Classic Vosne-Romanee!

Darren Harris: From a significant 1 hectare holding made up of two very well situated parcels right alongside the Grand Crus. Planted in the 1950's and 1980's. 100% destemmed. 50% new oak. Deep red. Slightly softer fruit character than Les Beaux Monts with cherry, kirsch and an array of soft, exotic  spices. A little more layered. Concentrated with excellent mouthfeel and ample extract. A hint of new oak and zippy acidity. Complex. Finishes long and engaging.

Darren Harris: Just 4 Barrels from a 0.17 ha holding. Vine age 60-70 years. 100% destemmed. Deep red-garnet. Very pure nose of cherry, rose petal and marzipan. Cool and deep. Sleek, muscled and mineral with spices rising as the wine sits in the glass. A hint of smoke, typical of the vineyard. Refined and harmonious with just the right amount of tannin on the finish. A very stylish Vosne.
