2011 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts, Domaine François Lamarche

A real step up in quality, this is a truly excellent Vosne-Romanée. Noticeably darker in the glass than any of the Lamarche wines tasted previously, there is so much more depth to the nose. Laden with violets, blackberries and an ever-so-slight touch of oak spice, the nose absolutely soars from the glass. Beautiful pure black fruit, wonderful texture and firm tannic structure hint at a wonderful future.

2011 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Aux Malconsorts, Domaine François Lamarche
Domaine François Lamarche

Whilst most of us receive crockery, the second Henri Lamarche was given La Grande Rue vineyard for his wedding present. It was only elevated to Grand Cru status in 1992, due to Henri’s fear of having to pay extra tax had he applied for the designation in 1936. This is an estate with an enviable set of vineyards, and under the control of cousins Nicole, the winemaker, and Nathalie, who looks after the commercial side, Lamarche are back where they belong, near the top of the Vosne Romanée tree.
