The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru comes from 0.5811 hectares of vine (why not be accurate?) split over two plots on either side of the single-track road that traverses the vineyard. It has a delicate, floral bouquet of more of the pressed rose petal aromas one finds on the Vosne-Romanée Chaumes, though here a touch more orange pith and chalk emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannins and fine acidity. A refined Suchots that eschews the opulent nature of this vineyard, aiming for something sleeker and more understated. There is a pleasant touch of black pepper right on the finish. Fine.
90-92 points, Neal Martin, Vinous (Jan 2020)
