Tasting Notes

Burghound, April 2008, Score: 92

Here the nose has turned almost completely secondary and is actually, and unusually so for the vintage, a bit animale in character with ripe and spicy sous bois notes that introduce very rich and concentrated flavors that are vibrant, punchy and detailed while exhibiting an attractive touch of minerality on the strikingly long finish. This is an impressively constituted '96 with solid phenolic maturity and the overall impression is a wine that is still relatively youthful. Drink: 2013+.Notes: harvested on September 25th.

Region

La Grande Rue, Red Burgundy

Vosne-Romanée's La Grand Rue on the Côte de Nuits was only given Grand Cru status in 1992. Thevineyard is a monopole of Domaine Lamarche who, in the 1930s when all the other grand crus in Vosne were being classified, did not apply for the promotion. La Grand Rue (1.65 ha) runs in a narrow strip of land and is located in between La Romanée-Conti and La Tâche on the slopes leading away from the town of Vosne-Romanée. Its limestone and clay soils are poorer and shallower than those to the south. La Grande Rue is considered to be among the finest, and highly prized of all burgundies with a character that is typically more feminine rather than powerful. Its wines share some similarity with the renowned La Romanée-Conti to the north.
