Tasting Notes

    he 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a simple raspberry and crushed strawberry scented nose, clean but simple. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, firm and grippy with the same drying finish exhibited by other 2016s from this vineyard. What you might call a "stunted" Echézeaux that is redeemed by its prettiness. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2018,
    Score: 91-94

    A beautifully layered blend is comprised by notes of a wide range of floral and spice elements that add elegance and breadth to the panoply of red berry fruit aromas. There is terrific intensity to the powerful, indeed even robust, big-bodied flavors that flex a taut muscularity on the serious, firm and youthfully austere finale. This is a big Echézeaux and one that is going to require extended bottle age, in fact 15 years may not be entirely sufficient so I would suggest not buying this in the hopes of good early drinking. Drink 2030+

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.

Region

Echézeaux

One of two Grand Crus within the Flagey-Echezeaux area right in the heart of the Cote de Nuits. Relatively large and consequently diverse for a Grand Cru, the better Echézeaux wines undoubtedly deserve this status. As always in Burgundy vineyard location and grower is critical.
