2022 Gérard Mugneret, Vosne-Romanée, Les Suchots, 1er cru, Burgundy, France

We come together around the idea of saying “yes”: A small word that contains everything.

Les Suchots is too big of a vineyard, with too much disparity in its terroir, to be counted among the best premiers crus. This is unfair to the best part of the vineyard, which is spectacular. It has a ton of Asian spice, the most celebrated aromatic signature of Vosne- Romanée. Texturally, it belongs to the family of terroirs that give you the greatest cuddles —a little more timid than the unabashed embrace of La Tâche or Les Amoureuses, but plainly put, great Suchots is very sensual drink. In contrast, its finish is discreet, not powerfully mineral, but very long.

Jasper Morris: “A typical Suchots begins with the ethereal perfume of a great Vosne-Romanée, but just when you expect it to build in the mouth it seems to fade away. Yet it does not die, and just as you are about to confess a slight feeling of deception you become aware that the subtle flavours still linger on the palate in a most entrancing fashion.

Allen Meadows: “When you find a really fine bottle of Suchots, it will offer a terrific drinking experience. It will almost always feature an utterly seductive and entirely classic nose of Asian spices that is complimented by an opulent richness on the mid-palate, delivering a certain fulness with absolutely no rusticity or hard edges on a finish of haunting length.”
