2018 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Suchots"

SKU #1544886 95-97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has a gorgeous bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit and more sous-bois aromas than the En Orveaux; touches of sage and pressed flowers emerge with time, adding more and more complexity. The medium-bodied palate offers sappy red fruit and gentle grip in the mouth. Quite structured for a Les Suchots, with a stunning, lightly spiced, energetic finish that has more vivacity than it knows what to do with. Fabulous. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

96 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Les Suchots is the biggest Premier Cru in Vosne-Romanée and its soils are correspondingly diverse. The Cathiards' parcel is on deep clay soils above the cemetery and has produced a rich, plush, glossy wine with engaging sweetness and intensity, red and black fruit flavours, supporting acidity and expertly judged oak integration. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Unfurling to reveal aromas of dark berries, plums and spices mingled with rich soil tones and dark chocolate, Cathiard's 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is medium to full-bodied, broad and enveloping, with a generous core of fruit, velvety tannins and a long, pure finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark In the same fashion as the En Orveaux reduction dominates but pretty spice elements escape the funk to suggest that when the nose cleans up this should be lovely. As is usually the case, the medium-bodied flavors offers more body and richness but not the same finesse or minerality while delivering equally good punch and power on the strikingly long finish. This beauty should be first-rate in time. *Sweet spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

94-97 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Dense purple black with a sternly concentrated nose. This is an imposing Suchots. Sweeter fruit up front, much more in reserve behind with more red fruit. This will require quite a bit more elevage but shows excellent promise. Lovely aromatics return just as you are about to start in on the next wine."
