Domaine De L'Arlot Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots 2016
The first thing you notice with this wine is the great purity of red fruit, most notably raspberry, with a touch of virginia tobacco behind. It's and elegant wine from this famous vineyard and the silkiness of Vosne Romanee is truly evident. Although very approachable in youth it will repay cellaring enormously and should be good for about 20 years if conditions are good.

Les Suchots is the largest premier cru climat within the Vosne-Romanée appellation of Burgundy. This vineyard separates the Echezeaux and Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru vineyards and, like its prestigious neighbours, it is planted entirely to Pinot Noir. The climat's wines are lush and full-bodied with earthy, spicy characters.
