The 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots is totally mesmerizing from the very first taste. Layers of dark cherries, exotic spice and menthol blossom in the glass as the wine begins to open up. The Suchots impresses for its depth and sheer power. The aromas and flavors continue to build towards a huge crescendo. This is a fascinating wine from Domaine de l’Arlot. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030. ||I was struck by the sheer beauty of the wines I tasted at Domaine de l’Arlot. The 2010s are stunning, while the 2009s are among the most structured wines of that year. Notes on the domaine’s 2009s will be published in the April issue. The 2010s are also the last wines made by Olivier Leriche, who left the domaine after the 2011 harvest. Leriche was replaced by Jacques Devauges, whose previous experience includes time at Frederic Magnien and Domaine de la Vougeraie. As is the case throughout the region, 2010 is a vintage marked by the devastating December frost, an irregular flowering caused by poor weather and continuing bad weather throughout the summer. Yields were down 30-40% across the board. The wines, however, are stunning, and I urge readers to check them out.||Various American importers, including: A Daniel Johnnes Selection imported by Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY, tel.

Organic since 2000 and biodynamic since 2003, the vineyards of Domaine de l'Arlot is rather unusually – for Burgundy – owned by insurance giant AXA. Located two km south of Nuits St. Georges, the domain covers around 14 hectares and was successfully set up by Lise Judet and Jean-Pierre De Smet, who worked under the great Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac before this project. Within the range of wines can be found rare white Nuits St. Georges, Romanée Saint Vivant and Vosne Romanée les Suchots. Wines are aged in about one third new wood and bottled unfiltered at 16-18 months for 1er crus. Christian Seely of AXA wines is the managing director and the reigns have since passed to Jacques Devauges to lead as technical director
