2011 Nuits-St Georges 1er Cru Les Cras, Domaine François Lamarche
Only two barrels of this wonderful wine were produced. Les Cras is on the Vosne side of the commune and, as a result, produces a very silky style of Nuits-St-Georges. That said, it is noticeably more masculine than the other wines tasted in the Lamarche line-up. Dark and brooding in the glass, there is a purity and precision about this wine. Violets and blueberry fruit are wrapped up in the silkiest of tannins, with a precise mineral-driven finish. Definitely a keeper.
