Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
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 "Echezeaux Grand Cru".
The Vintage 2007 : The weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours and gave rise to an exceptional phenolic maturity. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. This results in red wines with a crunchy flesh and an explosion of red fruits marvelously combined with the minerality of the terroirs. Aged in French oak during 15 months
Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Intense aromas of cooked red berries mixed with coffee and spices. Well-structured and well-balanced. Beautiful texture. Subtle oak and well-integrated tannins. Generous and silky finish.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
