Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The climat "Les Suchots" is located on a mid slope in the Northern part of the village of Vosne Romanée in the Côte de Nuits. Its nearest neighbour is the famous "Romanée Saint Vivant".
The Vintage 2002 : The harvest took place at the end of September, several days after the official beginning of the harvest in order to obtain the best possible maturation of the berries. Excellent weather conditions prevailed in August and September and hence the good quality of the grapes. A severe pruning had been carried out in July 2002 to limit yields. Aging in oak casks during 18 months
Tasting : Bright ruby colour with purple tinges. Intense aromas of kirsch cherries, jammy red berries on a liquorice note enhanced by a hint of vanilla. Well-structured, generous, good aromatic combination with a nice tannic structure, strong potential, good persistence.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
