Burghound – 91
Outstanding – This is also notably floral in character but the fruit profile is different as it’s somewhat darker with cassis, red and black cherry and sandalwood nuances. There is a really beautiful inner mouth perfume to the exuberantly spicy and generous middle weight flavors that possess a silky palate feel, all wrapped in a supple, round and mildly austere and saline-inflected finish. (Drink starting 2021)
Vinous – 93
The 2011 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots is similar to the Chaumes in style, but possesses even more richness and resonance. Sweet tobacco, dark red stone fruits, mint and dried rose petals develop over time, but ultimately, the Suchots is a wine of texture above all else. The layered, finish is simply exquisite.
