2013 Nuits-St Georges 1er Cru Les Cras, Domaine François Lamarche

The fruit on this is, as is to be expected, of a darker profile, with that enticing Nuits minerality. As is so often the case, a Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru from the Vosne side of Nuits, in the hands of a Vosne producer really produces the goods.

2013 Nuits-St Georges 1er Cru Les Cras, 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.
