Domaine-Francois-Lamarche-La-Grande-Rue-Grand-Cru-2011

Domaine Francois Lamarche, La Grande Rue Grand Cru, 2011

Domaine Francois Lamarche La Grande Rue Grand Cru 2011 is 100% Pinot Noir hand picked from vines averaging 30 years old, aged 16 and 20 months (60-100% new) and bottled with no fining or filtering. Pairs well with red and white meats and aged cheeses.

“Here the nose is all but mute though aggressive swirling liberates a discreet touch of wood that frames the cool red berry fruit nose that is lavishly spiked with an impressive array of spice notes. There is a sophisticated mouth feel to the supple yet well-detailed middle weight flavors that exude a fine dry extract on the gorgeously complex, persistent and utterly delicious finish. This should also drink well in its youth but amply reward longer-term cellaring.”
