This Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Suchots is dark in fruit and powerful.

Domaine Hudelot-Noellat is an iconic producer in the Côte de Nuits. The style of the Domaine is defined by elegance and purity. The vineyard “Les Suchots” is located next to the Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru vineyard and made from a vineyard planted in 1920. It combines the Domaine’s oldest vines with the vines of their Romanée-Saint-Vivant vineyard.

This wine is dark in fruit, powerful, balanced and impresses with its length. The palate has plenty of fine tannins and lovely earthy notes. It can be paired with barbecued rib eye and other top cuts of beef or simply with cheese and charcuterie. It will benefit from six to ten years cellaring, but if you prefer it young, decant it an hour before serving. 100% Pinot Noir.

"The Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Les Suchots” is a wine of superlatives. This is a Pinot Noir at its heavenly best!"

Charles Van Canneyt, Alain Hudelot-Noellat’s grandson, took over the Domaine in 2008 and for the last few vintages he has been entirely in charge of making the wines and he does so incredibly well. The wines have never been as good as they are now. Charles has a very clear approach when making his wines concerning the style he wants to achieve- elegance and purity. In order to do this Charles is careful not to overpower the taste of the wine made from his prestigious vineyards, which are a tremendous asset. With an ideal location, old vines to very old vines and fine clones of Pinot Noir, the challenge is to give the natural expression of the grapes the strongest voice. In 2014, Charles used around 20 to 25% of the whole bunch during the winemaking. Furthermore, he is only using natural yeast, fermenting the must in concrete vats and the maturation is long but with the right balance of oak used. The oak component rarely shows in the wines, only through subtle notes and aromas. This is a brilliant style of winemaking that champions the Pinot Noir varietal.
