Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Grands Echézeaux 2011 from Lamarche clearly has more fruit concentration than the offering from Albert Bichot: raspberry and wild strawberry racing out of the blocks, subtle wilted rose petal scents and minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, plenty of tart cherries and strawberry notes that gently build in the mouth. There is a gentle grip here and some unresolved oak to be subsumed, but there is great substance and length – the standout wine from Lamarche this year.
BH 93
A beautifully complex and distinctly floral nose brings together notes of admirably fresh red and blue pinot fruit, anise, exotic tea and spice nuances. There is excellent volume to the big-bodied, intense and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors, all wrapped in a powerful and long finish. Like the Malconsorts, this is really quite impressive.

Domaine Francois Lamarche Winery Image
Since 1797, on the prestigious terroirs of Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot, the vineyards have offered the Estate their precious fruit. From these terroirs , Domaine Francois Lamarche produces fourteen different wines, including la Grande Rue, a monopole of the Estate, one of the rare grands crus of Vosne-Romanée.

The Lamarche Estate, which now boasts a total surface area of nearly 28 acres, is a family firm, whose origin goes back several generations. Integrated viticulture has been adopted for all the vineyards, and both the terroir and history are expressed in the wines. They all have in common that elegance which combines exceptional balance and a delicate nose.

Claiming the two famous Grand Crus, Echezeaux and Grands Echezeaux, the identity of this village, Flagey-Echezeaux, rides predominantly on the glory of those two crus. All of the village or Premier Cru status vineyards in Flagey-Echezeaux market themselves under the name of their neighbor, Vosne-Romanée.

Echezeaux Pinot noir tends be light, bright and full of finesse, whereas those of Grands Echezeaux typically have more heft and complexity.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
