Hudelot-Noellat Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots 2001

August 25, 2012

The Hudelot-Noellat Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots 2001 is a memorable bottle from a good vintage.  Not cheap, not exhorbitant, but a fairly good value from a good producer for a premier cru burgundy.  Doesn’t matter, this vintage is no longer available and has been in the cellar for years.  With Tropical Storm (maybe Hurricane) Isaac fast approaching, this is the first bottle of a self-imposed hurricane party (just me) over the weekend.  So I wanted something special.  The cork was wet along its entire length.  A lot of people have concern with this.  For me, usually it means it’s going to be really good.  It didn’t disappoint.  The first pour yielded a light garnet color, typical of ten year plus burgundy.  The nose was unmistakably classic burgundian pinot noir.  That first sniff is always the best.  It instantly transported me back in time to November 2004, thanksgiving week, when I was in Beaune with Gary, a friend of mine.  It has now been open less than 10 minutes, and the mouthfeel is already generous and lubricating.  Flavors of elegant mixed spice box and underbrush, wet earth and rose linger elegantly on the palate.  This is supposed to be a special occasion bottle.  But as i’m sitting here alone with the shutters closed up waiting for the gale-force winds to arrive, I thought, what better occasion that this?  This is Steve R Morse in not so sunny and beautiful Fort Lauderdale with a new wine review.  Cheers!
