Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Domaine François Lamarche, Vosne Romanée, Aux Malconsorts, 1er Cru, 2016

Flowing, easy and silky with underlying ‘Malconsort’ grunt and muscle. Distinctly more extrovert and floral than usual, very attractive already, lovely juicy red berry and damson fruit, notes of cherry blossom with gentle tannic grip providing a framework for the fruit. A vineyard that sits next to the Boudots of Nuits St Georges that can produce similarly powerful, gripping wines. The other side of the Vosne commune to Suchots and totally the other side of the spectrum in terms of style.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2016 Vosne-Romanée Aux Malconsorts 1er Cru offers attractive pastille-like red berry fruit on the nose. Here the new oak is very well assimilated and allows the terroir to shine through. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit, a fine bead of acidity, impressive mineralité and precision towards the finish, although it does begin to flag with aeration, hence a lower score than I was hoping to give. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting.

Domaine François Lamarche

Domaine François Lamarche

A 10 ha domaine in Vosne whose jewel in the crown is the monopole La Grande Rue, which was elevated to Grand Cru status in 1992. After years of neglect by previous generations François oversaw a steady improvement in quality throughout the 1990s and in the last few years his daughters have helped raise the qualitative bar further still. As of the 2007 vintage the François' daughter Nicole has taken total control of the winemaking. The approach is fairly hands off in the winery and hands on in the vineyard. Grapes are feremented with a large proportion of whole bunches, depending in the vintage this could be up to 40-50%, and extractions is super gentle, more of an infusion. For élévage very little new oak is used - 20% for the Villages rising to 40% for La Grande Rue. These are delicate, high-toned and resplendent Burgundies of great caliber.
