“Eric Sussman told me that he likes to work with barrels made from staves dried for a full three years, and that he doesn’t rely on a single cooper. “I mix as I see fit, looking at the fruit, then choosing the cooper,” he explained. The soft-spoken Sussman is a methodical, thoughtful winemaker with extensive experience in Burgundy (at Comte Armand, with Pascal Marchand) and an extended stint at Dehlinger under his belt. His wines reflect his Old World training: they are pure expressions of variety and site, and are characterized by silky textures and an emphasis on balance over power.”
