Tasting Notes

  • BURG1

    Burghound, January 2010,
    Score: 90-92

    This also displays moderate new wood influence that largely if not completely stays out of the way of the ripe violet, soy and hoisin suffused blue pinot fruit aromas that are in keeping with the spicy, rich, round and utterly delicious flavors that are quite supple on the mid-palate but the finish tightens up with the same tangy character exhibited by a number of wines in the range. My score reflects a cautious benefit of the doubt. Drink: 2017+.

Drink: 2020+.

Producer

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.
