Domaine Lamarche Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 2011 750ml
As recent vintages go, the 2011 had more similarities to 2010 than any other in the past decade. The wines were decidedly mid-weight and classically Burgundian in style. These bottles are all about their elegance and their detail, and they will go for a very long time on the palate. The complex 2011 deftly weaves together fruit and spice. This wine derives from the estate’s east-facing three-quarter-acre clay and limestone parcel of thirty-year-old vines. After handpicking and de-stemming 80-100% of the grapes, Lamarche ferments them in temperature-controlled open oak vats for about two weeks; the wine matures in oak casks (60-100% new, depending on vintage) for 16-20 months, and it’s bottled without fining or filtration. About 100 cases made.
Sub Region: Côte d'Or
The history of the Lamarche family in the village of Vosne-Romanée dates back to the mid-eighteenth century, and it’s an important line for Burgheads. Henri Lamarche, a cooper, founded the estate and leaves his name and legacy. Fast-forward to today, the renowned 27-acre estate is run by sixth-generation winemakers Nicole and Natalie, who are sisters and daughters of the late, great François Lamarche, who passed his talents and his estate on to them. Lamarche holds its place as a leading domaine, producing wines that express themselves through their subtlety rather than their power, and bottlings that display ripe, high-toned fruit and strong sense of terroir. Domaine Lamarche produces 14 different wines in total, including La Grande Rue, a monopole of the estate and one of the rare grand crus of Vosne-Romanée; all are exceptional representations of their terroir, this estate, and Burgundy’s traditions.
Variety/Blend: Pinot Noir
