2017 La Grande Rue Grand Cru Monopole, Domaine François Lamarche
This monopole in the heart of Vosne is now undoubtedly back where it should be: among the appellation’s very finest wines. The vines average 50 year old thinks Nicole. Closed and brooding. But on the nose, there’s spice and cured meat, and a hint of dried herbs. It’s all very savoury. The palate has remarkable tension and purity. It’s dancing and fresh, so complex, with so much potential, but currently wound up like a spring. The length gives a hint of how far this will go.
