Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots 2007, Domaine Arnoux

VOSN105
Domaine Robert Arnoux is famous for the rich and exuberant style of its wines never more so than in 2007 which was very much a vintage of "bonne vivacite". Central to the Arnoux style is the rich and concentrated fruit content that absorbs the oak extremely well. This is a weighty, concentrated wine full of lush ripeness wrapped around the structured frame that is 'archetypal Arnoux'. A great Suchots!

Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux

The name Arnoux has been a feature in Vosne Romanée since the mid-19th century. Since the early 1990s, Robert Arnoux's son-in-law Pascal Lachaux has been running the estate and in 2009, Pascal and Florence have at long last made the subtle change in the naming of the Domaine. Pascal has indeed proved himself to be a hugely talented winemaker and his drive and ambition have ensured that the Domaine is now regarded amongst the top tier in Vosne-Romanée. The Domaine comprises some 12 hectares, with the highlights being the small Grand Cru holdings in Romanée St Vivant, Echézeaux, Latricières Chambertin and Clos de Vougeot and some excellent Premiers Crus, particularly Suchots, Reignots and Chaumes in Vosne Romanée and Corvées Pagets and Procès in neighbouring Nuits St Georges.

Tasting Notes

Wonderful spicy, pure aromas of black fruit, this wine is silky and subtle on entry, then delightfully vibrant with flavors of crushed red berries and blood orange and a pungent minerality which gives it a weightless impression. Fine and seductive this is an outstanding Suchots not to be missed.

Food Matches

Try with fennel scented duck breasts with a pinot noir sauce.
