  • The domaine dated back before the French Revolution, when Joseph Grivot sold his vineyards in Hautes Cotes and settled in Vosne-Romanee
  • Joseph's son, Gaston, was one of the first graduate of oenology from Univ. of Dijon in 1920s; together with Jean (Gaston's son), they built up the reputation of the domaine worldwide
  • In 1987, Etienne, the current winemaker, took over the domaine upon finishing his study of viti- and viniculture and working in California and elsewhere in France
  • Etienne brought in new improvements to the domaine by focusing on the basics (soil's balance, yield management, harvesting dates, use of oak, etc.)
  • Les Suchots lies on the same level as Romanee-Saint-Vivant and at its best, can produce wine with great perfume, just like RSV

IWC:90-92
IWC: 90-93

"Bright medium ruby. Black cherry and cocoa powder on the nose. Lush, silky and sweet, with lovely thickness and suave texture; cherry and redcurrant flavors. Then a bit firmer and less round on the finish than the Echezeaux ("more physical" is how Grivot describes it)." (Apr 2001)
