2017 Louis Jadot Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots

RATINGS

95Wine Enthusiast

...packed with tannins that lie over a dense fruity layer. It's a powerful, black-cherry and berry-flavored wine driven by tannins and a dry core.

94James Suckling

Exotic and decadent red with ripe strawberries, blackberries and perfumes. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish.

89-91Vinous / IWC

...bouquet is nicely defined, offering perfumed dark cherry, cranberry and orange blossom aromas...palate is crisp and well-defined on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, and quite linear and correct – toward the finish...

17.5Jancis Robinson

So ripe it almost smells of black cherries! Really fills the mouth with opulent, beautifully balanced fruit. Shaded, nuanced, with bite...

PRODUCER

Louis Jadot

Maison Louis Jadot is one of Burgundy’s most respected negociants. Founded in 1859 by the Jadot family, the prestige and quality of the estate’s wines were well established in the 19th century. The family continued buying highly desirable vineyards in the 20th century. In 1985 the estate was sold to Rudy Kopf, Jadot’s American importer. Located in Beaune, the estate has 336 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Though all the maison’s wines are known for their high quality, signature wines are the Bonnes Mares, Chambertin-Close de Beze, Chevalier-Montrachet les Demoiselles, Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Musigny. Pierre-Henry Gagey is president.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Vosne-Romanee, Les Suchots

Les Suchots is a 33-acre Premier Cru in Vosne-Romanee, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. The vineyard is at the same elevation as Romanee-Saint-Vivant. Its neighbors are Romanee-Saint-Vivant and Richebourg on the south and Les Echezeaux to the north.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
