(harvested on September 20th) This has gone from strength to strength and only seems to get better with each passing year. A lightly menthol-infused nose that is exceptionally ripe yet stops short of being surmature remains almost 100% primary with ample black fruit and spice aromas seamlessly merging into the rich, full and intense flavors brimming with power and muscle yet this by no means lacks for grace or elegance on the reserved but driving finish. I really like the amount of dry extract here as it relegates the still firm tannins to the background and this should age effortlessly for years to come.

Enticing pudding, spice and plum nose, with ripe blackberries. Fine-grained tannins on the finish. Will have its fans. 590 cases made.

About This Producer


Since 1797 the prestigious terroirs of Vosne-Romanee and Vougeot have provided Domaine Lamarche with their precious fruit. From these terroirs , Lamarche produces fourteen different wines, including the rare La Grande Rue, which is a Vosne-Romanee Grand Cru and a monopole as well. The Lamarche Estate, which remains a family firm to this day, boasts a total vineyard area of nearly 28 acres and the family has adopted integrated viticulture practices for all of their holdings. The goal is to express both their terroir and their history in each wine. Regardless of where the wines originate, the common thread that binds them all is elegance with exceptional balance and a delicate nose.
