2019 Nicole Lamarche Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru 750Ml BottleRegular price $819.00
The Domaine farms a small, 0.3-hectare parcel, which was planted in ‘79 just below the climat of Echézeaux du Dessus. You can expect more structure and power than the standard Echézeaux without any loss to the delicacy and finesse that are always a feature of this producer’s wines.
“Elegant, pure and airy aromas are also restrained if gorgeous while blending notes of exotic spice elements with those of floral and mostly red berry scents. The caressing big-bodied flavors possess excellent mid-palate density and almost painful intensity before concluding in a sappy, powerful and focused finale that is shaped by dense but attractively fine-grained tannins. This is at once serious yet elegant and a wine that should amply reward extended keeping; indeed, it will require it.” 95 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound
“A brisk clear pure cherry red colour with the most vibrant bouquet to date. Very intense, still more in red fruit than floral, then a wealth of intense yet hugely charming fruit, a little bit of alpine strawberry, some fresh deep red cherry, just the right acidity and a long graceful finish.” 94-97 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
