    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Nicole Lamarche, Vosne Romanée, Les Chaumes, 1er Cru, 2018

    The same translucence as the domaine's other wines but otherwise less typically "Lamarche" for its power and body. A textbook Chaume, however, showing rich, fleshy fruit. A wine with plenty of flesh on its bones, notes of crunchy plum and forest berry, damson, herb and undergrowth. Bold and impactful. One of the lower lying Vosne Premiers Crus, Chaumes produces very broad, ripe, plump wines.

    Nicole 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' daughters have total control of the winemaking. The approach is fairly hands off in the winery and hands on in the vineyard. Grapes are mostly de stemmed, depending on the vintage, and between 50-100% new oak is used. These are Burgundies that display ripe, hightoned fruit and strong terroir complexity. Nicole Lamarche heads up the operation from the 2018 vintage and everything going forward will be bottled with Domaine Nicole Lamarche labels.
