Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2007

    Deep ruby in colour, this 2005 offers a rich nose of strawberry and red cherry that develops into lightly toasted, earthy notes. Silky, yet powerful, its full-bodied palate goes on and on. Undoubtedly grand cru.

  • BURG2

    Burghound, April 2008,
    Score: 95

    A hint of menthol adds nuance to the mostly highly-spiced red berry fruit nose that is quite reserved if beautifully complex while leading to sweet, delicious, generous and round medium full flavors that are classy and refined, all wrapped in a strikingly persistent and explosive finish. This offers excellent cellar potential and at this early stage the wood, which is normally fairly prominent, is already well integrated but note that this will need every bit of 15 years, perhaps even slightly longer, to arrive at its prime as it's very structured. A really beautiful LGR that showed even a bit better than it had only three weeks earlier as it was given the benefit of an hour's worth of air. Drink: 2020+.Notes: harvested September 17th.

  • BURG1

    Score: 94

    A hint of menthol adds nuance to the mostly highly-spiced red berry fruit nose that is also quite reserved if a touch less complex and leads to sweet, delicious, generous and round medium full flavors that are classy and refined, all wrapped in a strikingly persistent and explosive finish. This too offers excellent cellar potential and at this early stage the wood, which is normally fairly prominent, is already well integrated but note that this will need every bit of 15 years, perhaps even slightly longer, to arrive at its prime as it's very structured. A really beautiful LGR. Drink: 2020+.

    Burghound, January 2007,
    Score: 91-94

    A hint of menthol adds nuance to the mostly highly-spiced red berry fruit nose that is also quitereserved if a touch less complex and leads to sweet, delicious, generous and round medium full flavors that are classy and refined if slightly less powerful, muscled and structured than those of the GE, all wrapped in a strikingly persistent finish. This too offers excellent cellar potential and at this early stage the wood, which is normally fairly prominent, is already well integrated. (91-94)/2014+

Domaine Lamarche

The Lamarche family have been in Vosne Romanée since 1740. Over the years and through multiple marriages, they were able to expand their earthly possessions and increase their vineyard holdings to include various parcels and plots across 11 appellations. Their most famous vineyard, which is also their flagship, is La Grande Rue, a 1.65 hectare plots in Vosne Romanée which became an official grand cru in 1992. Today the domaine is run by François Lamarche and his delightfully cheeky wife, Marie-Blanche. Their daughter, Nicole, and their niece, Nathalie, help with the vineyards and winemaking. More modern in thinking, they age all of their village, premier cru and grand cru wines in 100% new oak barrels.

La Grande Rue

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.
