Wine Advocate-Parker :
From purchased fruit, the Bouchard 2006 Vosne Romanee Les Suchots displays a haunting aromatic melange and corresponding complex flavor depth of marrow, ripe berries, oriental spices, and black truffle. Silken in texture, it finishes with refined length, though I had anticipated a bit more sense of interplay. I would plan to revisit this within the next couple of years but anticipate 4-6 years of fascination.
