Pinot noirs delivering Burgundy's finest terroir expression

2010 Domaine Lamarche Les Suchot Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru $80

This shows absolutely killer aromatics, all layers of pinot fruit, smoke, a bit of herb, leather, chalk and a hint of pepper wrapped up in a friendly veneer of spicy oak. Very firm and tight in the mouth, a bit closed even but this nonetheless reveals exceptional balance with faint echoes of everything found on the nose. This is like ringing a bell, just stunning clarity to this wine. The tannins are sweet and very ripe, seemingly almost diffuse and the back end and finish slowly reveal an excellent base of stony minerality here. This needs a decade but will be fabulous.  94pts Find it Here
