  • This long and narrow climat could not be better situated in Burgundy, surrounded on three sides by Romanée Conti, La Tâche and Romanée Saint Vivant. Classified Grand Cru since 1991, it was originally sold under the name of "Romanée Grande-Rue". Owned by the Lamarche domain, these wines combine elegance and finesse. Low yields, a perfectly matured grape, as well as a meticulous sorting are reflected in the quality of these wines. Some of the best soils in Vosne are responsible for the extreme finesse, refinement and nobleness of La Grande Rue. A lovely dark-coloured wine and aromas of spices, flowers and Morello cherry make this cru stand out from the other Vosne-Romanée.

    The Domaine Lamarche is a family business which goes back several generations. Since 1797 it has produced 14 different wines on the prestigious terroirs of Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot. Family-run by François Lamarche, his wife Marie-Blanche, her sister Geneviève, and daughter Nicole, the domain spreads over 11.23 hectares. It is managed using sustainable farming principles and is equally divided between Pinots Noirs for one half, and Chardonnays and Pinots Blancs for the other half. Well-known for being the sole domain producing the rare Grands Crus of Vosne-Romanée, it also has three other grands crus, including Clos de Vougeot, Échezeaux, and Grands-Échezeaux. The Lamarche family produces and matures its own wines; a low yield, a perfectly matured grape, as well as a meticulous sorting are reflected in the wines produced at the Lamarche domain.
