    A discreet touch of wood spice frames the earthy and ripe but reticent nose of red pinot fruit and violets where the earth continues onto the very rich and big-bodied flavors that possess ample muscle and plenty of sap buffered the very firm and tannic finish that is classic Clos de Vougeot with its pronounced youthful austerity. This is really quite promising.

    Deep crimson with some evolution. A touch animal on the nose. Polished, sweet, lots of juice here even if not much subtlety. Pretty dry finish.

    Moderately saturated medium red. Medicinal aromas of red cherry, fresh herbs, licorice and exotic spices. Offers lovely sweetness and intensity of flavor, with a firm tannic spine giving it structure and grip. This boasts good breadth but shows some slightly bitter medicinal austerity and is evolving very slowly. Marie-Blanche says the family owns parcels at the top, middle and bottom of this huge grand cru vineyard.

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.
