    Lovely juicy sweet succulent wild fruit flavours. This is a mouth coating style, with tremendous layers of fruit and fine length on the finish.

    The 2012 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots has a much more boisterous, showy bouquet compared to the Petits Monts with succulent red berry fruit, spice and tertiary aromas. That is what we like to see from Les Suchots! The palate is spicy and vibrant with good backbone and a "solid" finish that needs to soften a little by time of bottling. This will be utterly delicious.

    So bright. Rich and firm. Dry finish and very juicy with a hint of sweet cocoa. Lots of promise. Drink 2018-2026

Producer

Maison Roche de Bellene

Son of the family who used to own the illustrious Domaine de la Pousse d’Or, Nicolas Potel set up his négociant label Maison Roche de Bellene in 2008. A Bourguignon through and through, Nicolas’ unrivalled local network of thoroughly reliable grower-suppliers allows him to source fruit from the most sought-after parcels in the Côte. He also produces a selection of domaine wines (under Domaine de Bellene). The emphasis remains to this day on well-sited venerable vines and viticulture and the Maison Roche de Bellene label is the superlative source of attractive, well-priced Burgundy wines. Nicolas chose the name ‘Bellene' in honour of the ancient Roman name for Beaune.

Region

Vosne-Romanée

The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
