International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($210) Good deep red. Exotic, liqueur-like aromas of cherry, coffee, mocha and minerals. Impressively concentrated, opulent and powerful, with harmonious acidity and strong minerality giving this terrific sappiness for a 2003. The wine's spicy red fruits offer excellent mouth coverage.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 2006
Burghound | Rating: 91Discreet if not invisible hints of wood spice complement gorgeously spicy and elegant black cherry pinot fruit nuanced with an abundance of different herb and tea notes. The medium full flavors, while clearly very ripe avoid any sense of surmaturit‚, are classy, precise and very pure with a dusty, intense and sappy texture that both coats and stains the palate. I very much admire the way this is at once powerful and weighty yet manages to retain a first rate sense of balance. To be sure, this is indisputably a child of the 2003 vintage, which is to say notably ripe yet it completely avoids the excesses that plague some wines.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 2nd Quarter, 2008
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.
