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 "Romanée Saint Vivant".
The Vintage 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Aging in oak.
Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Intense aromas of black cherries mixed with chocolate and spices. Delicate vanilla note. Well-structured and well-balanced. Dense with a tight texture. Subtle oak and refined tannic structure. Long and generous 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.
