2005 Domaine François Lamarche La Grande Rue Grand Cru
FRANCE / BURGUNDY / VOSNE-ROMANÉE
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Good deep red. Coolish, discreet aromas of cherry, minerals and menthol. Broad, lush and pure; a step up in sweetness and flesh from this estate's other 2005s but with strong mineral and crushed stone elements giving real punch to the red fruit and floral flavors. This has real grand cru weight and palate presence. Finishes with harmonious tannins and superb aromatic persistence. A beauty-and built for long life in bottle.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: March/April 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.
