Burghound, January 2019,
A whisper of wood can be found on the very ripe and beautifully layered array of red currant, Asian-style tea, lavender and violet aromas. The medium-bodied flavors are rich, intense and relatively robust with excellent depth and drive on the austere, backward and strikingly long finish. This beauty possesses outstanding potential but patience is indisputably required. Drink 2032+
Wine Advocate, January 2019,
Bursting from the glass with lavish aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and cassis that mingle with nuances of smoked duck and rich soil, the 2017 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is full-bodied, broad and dramatic, with a fleshy attack, considerable depth and volume at the core, and a long, succulent finish. This is an immensely seductive Suchots.
Domaine Sylvain Cathiard
Sylvain Cathiard is one of the top growers in Vosne Romanée, a region not shy of exceptional talent. He only has around 4.25 hectares of vines, therefore the quantity that he makes is particularly small. Traditionally, Burgundy domaines are renowned for being minute in size, and he is definitely amongst the smallest. In addition, he has some of the most exceptional vineyards, which read like a Who's Who list of the Côte de Nuits, many of which are located next to grand crus sites. This combination is lethal for allocations. Too little wine with too many open hands all waiting for their fair share. SInce 2011 his talented son, Sébastien, has been running the domaine.
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.
