2018 Domaine Lamarche La Grande Rue Grand Cru

SKU #1476530 95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Interestingly, this is actually quite similar to the nose of the Grands Ech but it's arguably even spicier and quite cool in the context of the 2018 vintage along with a top note of menthol. The pliant medium-bodied flavors possess a decidedly sleek mouthfeel though the tension really builds from the mid-palate to the firm, dusty and very serious finish that offers outstanding length. Patience strongly advised as this is definitely resolutely structured. In a word, excellent. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Nicole Lamarche's wines never overwhelm you with colour or extract, preferring grace and charm to full-throttle flavours. This is a case in point: a gentle, aromatic, sweetly beguiling expression of this 1.65ha monopoly vineyard with tobacco pouch aromas, spicy red cherry and wild strawberry fruit and fine-grained tannins. A Pinot lover's Grand Cru red. (TA) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 La Grande Rue Grand Cru is the famous 1.65-hectare monopole of the domaine that runs parallel to Romanée-Conti and La Romanée on the other side of the road. It has a well-defined bouquet of dark cherries, raspberry, wild hedgerow and traces of Chinese tea, developing tertiary notes after a couple of minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, a satin-like texture and just the right amount of acidity. The caressing, slightly gourmand finish displays hints of meat juices and a subtle savory aspect lends complexity. Very fine. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

K&L Notes

94-98pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Mid crimson colour. The nose is more about elegance than weight. A little iron-rich blood orange nose - there is evident iron oxide in the lower part of the vineyard. The glory of La Grande Rue shows in the more sumptuous texture on the palate, and not just the length of the finish, but also the detail. It still does not wish to make a massive statement but it absolutely fulfils what Nicole Lamarche is trying to achieve."
