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 2011 : 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 during 17 months.
Tasting : Deep ruby colour. Intense aromas of raspberry liquor mixed with black berries and sandalwood notes. Well-structured and well-balanced. Dense with a tight texture. Voluminous. Delicate oak note and well-crafted tannins. Long and refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
