2017 Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Domaine François Lamarche

From a parcel in Concoer-et-Courboin, just up the hill from Vosne. Very cool fruit, alpine touched and pretty, floral character. Lovely darker fruit, too. Nice energy and purity - fresh and silky and saline on the finish, with nice persistence and length. Very finely judged.

2017 Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits, 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.
