Somehow we ran out of wine as our La Fromage course was being readied. So went and pulled this from the cellar. Pop n Pour. Old tawny color, thin in glass. But a great nose with some funk comes on immediately. Has a great old Vosne spice-driven nose. Red fruit and sois bois. A great treat late in the evening. (Bday 12 of 13)

Why is les Suchots not a grand cru. Many of them are much better than Echezeaux or Grand echezeaux. This is one of them. Needs time in the glass, therefore decant 45 minutes. Full bodied, great salinity and minerality, long long burn. Quite the opposite than most other 2017s, yes approachable but will and needs to age.

Deep tawny color. Almost opaque. Exotic nose. Notes of raspberries, Asian spice, black pepper and a little bit of stem. Rich and fruit forward in the mouth. Got better and better with air; in hour 7 you’d be guessing blind this is DRC.

Scarlet tawny and translucent. Killer nose. Notes of Asian spice, raspberries, red cherries, white pepper, moist black soil and some menthol. Rich and powerful in the mouth. Fruit and structure are nicely balanced. Lasting finish. This wine continues to perform above its pay grade.

Poured into a decanter at a restaurant and then consumed. Dark bright tawny. Great Vosne nose. Notes of black cherry, menthol, raspberry, earth, spice and some kirsch. Great rich fruit. Luscious. With more air the body grew and the finish became bigger. Great stuff

Outstanding, medium bodied, delicate. Drink beautifully now. Suchots at its best should be grand cru. This one is.

Tawny purple, opaque. With 3 hours of air the nose blossomed and exhibited the grace and power of a great Vosne. Notes of black cherries, Asian spice, some menthol, dark moist black soil, some sandalwood and a little rose petal. This powered up with air and showed its stuff over several hours of consumption. Great wine.

Reddish tawny color. Vibrant in the glass. Direct nose with notes of raspberries, rhubarb, asian spice and moist black soil. At first, more structure than fruit. But with 6+ hours of air a sweetness develops and softens the harsher notes, making this more voluptuous. Was singing loudly at the end of the shindig!

Tawny color, vibrant, translucent. Crazy exotic nose. Notes of raspberry, rhubarb, Asian spice, stone, moist soil and some menthol. Very Vosne. Great mouth feel, “goes to the pleasure center of the brain” as ST once wrote. I’ve had this bottle maybe 8-10 times and this was as good or better than before. Great stuff
