94 - 96 Points!  The 2015 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is 100% whole bunch this year, the first time that this has been done and it was raised in two-thirds new oak. Frankly, I was concerned that might be too much, but on the contrary it is actually quite difficult to discern and it allows the mineralité to really shine through, tempering the usual opulence of this vineyard and offering something very focused and energetic. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tension and poise, well-judged acidity, razor-sharp precision with a very long, saline aftertaste. This is one of the best Les Suchots that I have encountered in the 2015 vintage, though it deserves several years in bottle.  Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #228, December 2016
92 - 94 Points!  (lightly acidified; vinified entirely with whole clusters and aged in 60% new barrels): Bright ruby-red. Classic Suchots aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate. Very tightly wound; showing less early sweetness than the 2014 version but still has the essential suppleness of 2015. Less aromatic in the middle palate, but still with some spicy lift to its dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors. This sappy, backward wine finishes with a firm spine of building tannins. Should be a slow developer and will merit a score at the top end of my projected range if it develops more sweetness and give.  Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, January 2017
 
93 Points!  From vines planted in 1950.  A completely different aromatic profile offers up a wide variety of spice and floral elements, in particular rose petal and violet, that add a touch of elegance to the tea, cassis and dark cherry-scented nose. There is a rich, suave and velvety texture to the palate coating medium weight flavors that deliver excellent length on the firm but not really austere finish. This is a big Suchots and one that is also clearly built-to-age though the abundant sap should allow it to be enjoyed after 5 years or so though it will need 12 to 15 to reach its apogee. - Allen Meadows, Burghound #69
