Louis Jadot Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots 2009
WA93: The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots presents a more linear, mineral-driven voice of Vosne. This is quite a bit more taut and focused than the Beaux Monts. It is also less immediate, and will require a bit more patience. Floral notes meld into dark red fruit and anise in this structured yet feminine Burgundy. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.
VM92: Very pure, liqueur-like aromas of red berries, botanical herbs, mint, spices and flowers. Dense, supple, sweet and concentrated, with a lovely pliant texture to the silky yet firm-edged flavors of strawberry, minerals and spices. Very ripe but not at all roasted. Finishes very long and perfumed, with a serious tannic spine and a light touch.
