Food Pairings for Vincent Girardin Vosne Romanée Les Suchots Premier Cru
Violets, deep red fruit such as ripe field strawberry greet the nose in high concentration. This is a gamay depth-charge with silky tannin and intense Pommard-like depth. Not much like a Beaujolais at all, and that may be a good thing with this Cru. Delicious, with a long finish this wine will keep another 3-5 years but why wait? 90 points.
External Reviews for Vincent Girardin Vosne Romanée Les Suchots Premier Cru
#54 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011 With their structure and complexity as well as the capacity for ageing, wines from Moulin-à-Vent were always cited as excellent among Cru Beaujolais. This 2009 From the Domaine Vincent Girardin is produced from the Clos within the estate. Old vines and low yields mean dense concentration and complexity. Wine Spectator score this wine 92 points saying "Lush fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry mix with a core of spice and dried herb notes in this fresh and silky red, which has lightly chewy tannins, followed by lingering hints of dark chocolate and cardamom on the finish. Drink now through 2016." Don't Miss it!
The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits a dense purple color as well as an expressive bouquet of black currants licorice kirsch meat juices and hints of spice box as well as lavender. Full-bodied opulent rich and stunningly concentrated it is one of the vintage s finest efforts. This beauty should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 15+ years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Not made in every vintage only about 125 cases were produced from a plot of century-old grenache vines planted on sandy soils. This darkly colored wine has compact and rather closed aromas with smoky overtones mingling with blueberry jam. The palate reveals gobs of richly textured pure fruit that coats the tongue. Almost confectionary and viscous the blueberry jam flavors are borderline ripe yet never giving the sense that it is over-the-top. With so much flavor now it is hard to resist yet 5-10 years will bring provide some softness toning down the juicy primary fruit. Chuck Hayward.
A distinctly earthy and rather somber nose of dark berry and sauvage aromas that leads to mildly rustic middle weight flavors that possess good detail if not much refinement or elegance all wrapped in a focused and somewhat linear finish that is dusty and ever-so-slightly dry but not astringent. Burghound.
