Wine Critic Reviews for 1993 Robert Arnoux Vosne Romanee Les Suchots

(Domaine Robert Arnoux Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru Red) Classic Vosne nose brimming with Asian spice leading to seductive, complex, fine, slightly reserved flavors that still have some tannin to resolve on the spectacularly long finish. This is approaching its peak even though it should hold there for a good while and this just reeks elegance and class. Truly a stunner of a wine that undeniably delivers grand cru quality and length. (Drink starting 2007)

(Vosne-Romanée “les Suchots”- Domaine Robert Arnoux) I have always had a warm spot for the 1993 Suchots from Domaine Robert Arnoux, which seems less marked by its new wood than more recent vintages of this bottling. The wine was stellar in its youth and has aged very well indeed, so that today it offers up a deep, vibrant and complex bouquet of raspberries, plums, coffee, Vosne spice tones, a lovely base of autumnal soil tones and spicy new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and beautifully focused, with a lovely core of red fruit, excellent transparency and a very long, autumnal and tangy finish of modest tannins and outstanding complexity. A beautiful bottle at its peak, but with plenty of life still ahead of it. (Drink between 2013-2035)

Arnoux's top two cuvees should be no surprise to his fans. This estate has always made exquisite Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots, and this vineyard (40-70-year old vines) has once again turned in a DRC-look-alike performance. From its huge nose of Asian spices, smoke, sweet berry fruit, and toast, to its exquisite richness, voluptuous texture, and medium to full-bodied, lavishly fruity, intense finish, this is a remarkably rich, hedonistic red Burgundy. I would opt for drinking it now and over the next 10-12 years. Arnoux's 1993s are unequivocally major successes for the vintage. Before his death, Arnoux and the man currently responsible for the wine-making, Pascal Lachaux, had been voluntarily moving toward less fertilization, higher extraction, and more natural bottling. To their credit, the 1993s were bottled without fining or filtration. These are promising wines, with considerable complexity, well-integrated tannin, and copious quantities of sweet, expansive Pinot Noir fruit.

If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
