Domaine Jérome Chézeaux
Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots

Toponymy: We can, perhaps, compare “Suchots” with “Suc” and “Suquet” which, in the south, designate a mound. Or “Suchots” could designate, in Burgundian patois, old stumps.

Area in production at the estate: 34 ares 30

Soils: Calcareous soil resting under a stony and marly subsoil

Locations: East, South/East Northern part of Vosne-Romanée

Altitude: 250m to 270m

The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. They carry out a first sorting in the vineyard, then on arrival at the winery on a sorting table.

The harvest is 100% destemmed. A cold maceration is carried out during the first 3-4 days out of the 18 to 21 days of vinification.

Throughout this period, daily manual remontage (punching down) and pigeage (pumping over) are practiced.

Indigenous yeasts are used exclusively, and malolactic fermentation occurs in small oak barrels during the extended ageing of the wines.

They use 30% new barrels per appellation.  The wines are bottled without filtration between 18 to 24 months after harvest.

Les Suchots are remarkable for their finesse and richness. They are full-bodied, fragrant, and very elegant with complex aromas. The fine and delicate tannins give it a beautiful length and a beautiful intensity which make it a wine of great elegance. Between Romanée Saint-Vivant, Echezeaux and Richebourg, “Les Suchots” according to some tasters are among the best of the 1ers Crus of Vosne-Romanée.
