Lucien Le Moine exclusively produces Grands and Premiers Cru's from Côte d'Or from the most beautiful Cru's in each Village. The owners renew their selection every year, depending of their view of the year. Having studied, lived and worked in Burgundy for many years, the owners of this micro-négoce, Mounir and Rotem Saouma, got to know many good growers in the region. They decided to join these relations and their devotion to quality in a small selected production of Cru's.
The principal premiers crus of Vosne-Romanée all lie in Vosne, and the finest of these, approaching grand cru level in quality, are generally considered to be Les Suchots, Les Malconsorts, Les Gaudichots and La Grande Rue. Les Suchots consists of two contiguous parcels totalling 32 acres situated between Romanée Saint-Vivant and Le Richebourg, on the south side, and Les Echézeaux, on the north side. Typically, Suchots combines the richness of Le Richebourg with the delicacy of Romanée Saint-Vivant.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots is one of the highlights in this brilliant group of 2010s from proprietor Mounir Saouma. Dark cherries, deeply pitched spices, licorice and crushed rocks are woven together in a rich, layered fabric of utter distinction and sheer class. The Suchots possesses striking depth and fabulous balance. Exotic spice notes waft across the palate on the finish. This is pure Vosne and pure Suchots. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

BurghoundHere the introverted and almost mute nose reflects only wisps of spice on the ripe but discreet dark berry fruit and plum aromas. By contrast there is good richness and punch to the velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors that display good size and weight before terminating in a dusty and firm finish of more than admirable length. Like many of the wines in the range, the tannins are incredibly fine and while a classic Suchots is virtually never rustic this is an unusually refined example. 91-93
