Domaine Jerome Chezeaux Vosne Romanee Premier Cru Les Suchots 2018

Vosne Romanée wines denote, above all, elegance.  Their mellow character dominates, sustained by fairly discreet tannins and acidity. Les Suchots shows aromas of violets (dominant), toasted bread and blackcurrants, and is floral and fruity when young.   As the wine ages, more spicy, leather and licorice notes emerge.

Pairs very well with red meat such as grilled Charollais beef, flank steak with shallots, roast pork with chestnuts, or extra mature cheeses from the Abbaye de citeaux.
 

Ageing potential
10-15 years

Domaine Jerome Chezeaux Vosne Romanee Premier Cru Les Suchots 2018

Domaine Chezeaux has 34.30 ares in this appellation.  The vineyards are located to the north of the Vosne Romanée village, facing “Les Richebourg” and “La Romanée St. Vivant”. The soil is deep, fine, with a high clay content. The vines have a east\southeast exposure, at an altitude between 250-270m. The name “Suchots" may be linked to "suc" or "suquet", which means “hillock” in the south of France.  "Suchots" can also designate “old stumps” in the Burgundy dialect.

Vinification

Vinification is traditional. The harvested grapes are fermented in open vats for between 12-16 days, depending on the year. The grapes undergo 2-3 days cold maceration before the start of fermentation.  Pumping-over and cap punching operations ensure that the grape matter is well distributed throughout the wine.  After de-vatting, the wines are transferred into 228 litre oak barrels (of which 30% are new each year), where they will spend 15-18 months before being bottled.
