2008 Vosne Romanee Les Suchots

Domaine de l'Arlot

The 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots is subtle, perfumed and delicate. It is a pretty, understated wine, but here I prefer the 2009 for its greater density and richness, which should provide a wider and longer drinking window of enjoyment. Sweet spices, flowers and licorice linger on the fleeting finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2026. ||Domaine de L’Arlot has been an organic estate for ten years. In 2009 Olivier Leriche began harvesting on September 7 and ended around the 15th. The wines were vinified with a higher than normal percentage of whole clusters and spent 20-25 days on the skins. I tasted most of the 2009s from barrel. Leriche planned to bottle the wines with no fining or filtration. I also tasted a handful of 2008s. The 2008s were bottled between April and July 2010 (a bit on the late side because of the lengthy malos) with no fining or filtration.||Various American importers, including: A Daniel Johnnes Selection imported by Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY, tel.
