The 2009 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots is a wine of contrasts. Although the fruit is at times quite overt, there is a delicate side to the Suchots that is equally compelling. Dark red raspberries, crushed roses, mint, licorice and tobacco are some of the notes that are woven into the gracious, totally exquisite finish. Readers are going to have a hard time keeping their hands off this gem. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
Louis-Michel Liger-Belair’s 2009s have turned out just as great as I thought they would. These are some of the most personal, intimate wines being made in Burgundy. There really is nothing else that even closely resembles the house style.
