Ample amounts of Vosne style spice and dark pinot fruit and earth aromas are trimmed in noticeable but not invasive wood. The fresh and bright medium-bodied flavors possess a beguilingly seductive texture while being supported by firm tannins on the dry, clean and linear finish that is mildly tangy at this point. 90-92

Score: 92. —Allen Meadows,

Wine Advocate

Cassis, blackberry, star anise, smoky black tea, and hints of caramel in the nose of the Le Moine 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots (of which there are 3 barrels) lead to a correspondingly complex, juicy yet rich palate transparent to mineral nuances. The abundant tannins coat the tongue and slightly repress the fruit in what is nevertheless a persistent, pungently smoky finish. There seems little question this will easily handle a dozen or more years- cellaring, but its expression of tannins might change significantly even short-term, and ordinarily one would expect more from this Le Moine cuvee.

Score: 91-92. —David Schildknecht, June 2010.
