Domaine Lescure Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots 2009
When discussions about which Premier Cru vineyards could be elevated to Grand Cru status occur Les Suchots is one that is always mentioned.
Suchots is sandwiched between the Grand Crus Richebourg, Romanee-St-Vivant and Echezeaux and only a slight dip in the land explains the 1er Cru classification.
Jasper Morris says it is a "source of exceptional wine...but it not a blockbuster". And nor should it be. "A typical Suchots begins with the ethereal perfume of a great Vosne-Romanee....the subtle flavours still linger on the palate in a most entrancing fashion".
Lescure's 2009 Suchots is archetypal with the perfume, spice and elegance one expect.
