2018 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots (750ml)15 2 0 0
95-97 points Vinous
The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has a gorgeous bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit and more sous-bois aromas than the En Orveaux; touches of sage and pressed flowers emerge with time, adding more and more complexity. The medium-bodied palate offers sappy red fruit and gentle grip in the mouth. Quite structured for a Les Suchots, with a stunning, lightly spiced, energetic finish that has more vivacity than it knows what to do with. Fabulous. (Drink between 2024-2050) NM (1/2020)
93-95 points Wine Advocate
Unfurling to reveal aromas of dark berries, plums and spices mingled with rich soil tones and dark chocolate, Cathiard's 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is medium to full-bodied, broad and enveloping, with a generous core of fruit, velvety tannins and a long, pure finish.

In the same fashion as the En Orveaux reduction dominates but pretty spice elements escape the funk to suggest that when the nose cleans up this should be lovely. As is usually the case, the medium-bodied flavors offers more body and richness but not the same finesse or minerality while delivering equally good punch and power on the strikingly long finish. This beauty should be first-rate in time. (1/2020)
