2013 La Grande Rue Grand Cru Monopole, Domaine François Lamarche

When driving through the Grands Crus of Vosne, you can't hap wondering why they haven't planted vines on the roads, given the price of land! That is even more the case if this is what happens when you plant on a 'rue'! This monopole is defined by freshness this year, with fantastic concentration. As good as ever.

2013 La Grande Rue Grand Cru Monopole, 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.
