Domaine Francois Lamarche Vosne-Romanee Les Malconsorts Premier Cru 2012
A deft application of wood sets off very spicy, cool and airy aromas of red and black pinot fruit along with notes of violet and lavender. There is good power to the luscious, concentrated and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors that deliver fine depth and length on the moderately firmly structured finish.
100% Pinot Noir. Since 1797, on the prestigious terroirs of Vosne-Romanee and Vougeot, Lamarche's vineyards have offered the estate their precious fruit. From these terroirs, they produce fourteen different wines, including la Grande Rue, a monopole of the Estate, one of the rare grands crus of Vosne-Romanee. The Lamarche estate, which now boasts a total surface area of nearly 28 acres, is a family firm, whose origin goes back several generations. They have adopted integrated viticulture for all our vineyards, and they try to express both their terroir and their history in their wines. The wines all have in common that elegance which combines exceptional balance and a delicate nose.
