LUCIEN LE MOINE

Vosne-Romanée "Les Suchots"

Premier Cru

Vosne-Romanée covers 388 acres, and the fourteen premier cru vineyards cover just over 141 acres: eleven of these are in Vosne, two are in Flagey, and one is split between the two, with total acreage of 113 and 28 acres, respectively, in each commune. The principal premiers crus in Vosne-Romanée lie in Vosne, and the finest of these, approaching grand cru level in quality, are generally considered to be Les Suchots, Les Malconsorts and Les Gaudichots. Les Suchots consists of two contiguous parcels totalling 32 acres situated between Romanée Saint-Vivant and Le Richebourg, on the south side, and Les Echézeaux, on the north side.

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.
