Lucien Le Moine Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Les Suchots” 2016 (92 BH)
“Moderate reduction masks everything save for a few spice elements. The rich, full-bodied and very generously proportioned flavors brim with an abundance of dry extract while showing fine persistence on the balanced finish that is a bit one-dimensional, at least at present.”
Lucien Le Moine
Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Les Suchots”
Les Suchots is one of Lucien Le Moine’s finest Crus every year. Mounir says that, like Échézeaux, there is an almost Syrah-like character of licorice and smoke. Les Suchots is a wine with a lot of tannin and less of a classic, delicate Burgundian profile.
In two decades of work, Lucien Le Moine has become one of the most talked about Burgundy producers, making some of the most sought after wines from the region. The approach is extreme – two people, together doing everything by hand, working with a dazzling array of Burgundy’s great terroirs.
