From a great looking bottle bought at the Domaine. Tawny and light in the glass. Bright cherry focused nose. Also notes of spice, dark soil, cranberry and burlap sac. Rich and liqueur like in the mouth. Heavy and masculine. There is a hint of steminess but you have to look for it. Not my favorite vintage of this but it was serviceable.

Raspberry tawny in the glass, translucent. Bright aromatic nose. Notes of red fruit, rhubarb, Asian spice, dark moist soil and a hint of menthol. Big and round in the mouth, but still has an edge - even with 3 hours of air. Has a lot going on for it, yet I’ve found that this wine was more extravagant and inspiring a few years back, and not as much in the last year or two.

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!
