Burgundy ~ 1er Cru Les Suchots
In the Burgundy commune of Vosne-Romanee, just a brief stroll from the legendary Romanee-Conti Grand Cru, the Les Suchots Premier Cru vineyard delivers vivid and nuanced expressions of Pinot Noir for a vastly lower price.
Maison Champy’s technical director and oenologist Dimitri Bazas compared the clean fruit from 2015 to the region’s stellar 2005 vintage, taking great care to craft a perfumed, impeccably balanced Les Suchots that could offer early enjoyment or reward patience in the cellar.
“Beautiful garnet ruby color. Cherry notes with, at the same time, a nose of mint and coffee with aromas of plum liqueur. On the palate, an exceptional sweetness and richness that coats a dry extract that gives the persistence and balance in the final of this wine. Great aging potential.”
