2015 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Cras, Domaine François Lamarche

Shown after Malconsorts and Suchots at the estate, such is its power and intensity. It’s on the same line as Malconsorts, just one further vineyard over, and this has cool fruit and slightly more grippy tannins than the Vosnes. The joy of Nuits in the hands of a Vosne star.

2015 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.
