    Cuvée presentation

    Adjacent to the best part of Clos de Vougeot is the grand cru Grand-Échézeaux, which borders the south-west side and spreads out on the slopes over several hamlets. A Grand Cru appellation from Côte de Nuits, produced in the commune of Flagey-Échezeaux. These wines, some of the most prestigious from Burgundy, are strong and well-structured. Grands-Echezeaux outclasses Echezeaux in strength, generosity and volume. These full-bodied and sturdy wines are characterised by their silky amplitude and finesse. As a young wine it develops fine aromas that evoke cherry and cocoa beans, a rare and fine quality sought after in the "climat". As it ages its fragrances mature into notes of undergrowth, truffle, fine leather and sometimes an almost imperceptible touch of cigar and cedar. Its noble, fine-grained tannins have just the right combination of silkiness and freshness. The wines from Domaine Lamarche are matured in oak barrels during 16 to 20 months and bottled without fining or filtration. They can be aged for 6 to 30 years.

    Information about domain François Lamarche

    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.
