This vineyard sits below the hill of Corton. Le Suchot, which roughly translates to “the little mound”, faces the Château of Corton. The terroir highlights the richness and strength of the wine but also its finesse and generosity. Well suited for cellaring, this wine conveys the soul of Savigny-les-Beaune.
"What a stunning and darkly beautiful village wine from an appellation unjustly overlooked: a bosky nose, redolent of briar, hazel, pine-needles and enriched by aromas of blackcurrant and forest floor, marks the elegant yet brooding nature of this wine. There is a stunning purity to the fruit; dark black cherry, boysenberry, and hints of bramble, which dominates the palate, and is backgrounded by further sous-bois and sweet loam. There is a wreath of rose-hip and black tea around the close, with firm but supple tannins in structural support. This is a gorgeous wildcard from a dark-horse appellation, that sidesteps allegations of rusticity. Not to be overlooked." - Randall
