A subtle touch of wood serves as a suitably discreet backdrop for the exceptionally floral-infused and perfumed nose that offers up additional notes of spice, red currant and pekoe tea. The round, refined and lilting if impressively intense flavors are blessed with excellent punch and power while exhibiting a lovely salinity on the built-to-age finish. This refined effort is very classy, indeed the word Zen comes up mind. Drink 2035+

A subtle touch of wood serves as a suitably discreet backdrop for the exceptionally floral-infused nose that offers up additional notes of spice, red currant and pekoe tea. The rounder and slightly less intense flavors are still blessed with excellent punch and power while exhibiting more salinity on the built-to-age finish. This is more refined than the Grands Ech but not quite as complex, at least not today. Drink 2030+
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.
The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
