Nicole Lamarche Grand Cru Grands Echezeaux 2018

This is just our second allocation of Lamarche’s Grands Echézeaux. The Domaine farms a small, 0.3-hectare parcel, which was planted in ‘79 near the Route des Grands Crus, just below the climat of Echézeaux du Dessus. You can expect more structure and power than the standard Echézeaux without any loss to the delicacy and finesse that is always a feature of this producer’s wines.

Gorgeously perfumed aromas waft from the glass to reveal slightly more elegant and layered aromas of red berry fruit liqueur that are trimmed in hints of sandalwood, violet, lilac and lavender. The mouthfeel of the larger-scaled flavors is at once muscular yet reasonably refined while delivering excellent length on the very firmly structured finale. At present this is somewhat linear and austere, yet my sense is that it will flesh out with extended time in bottle. 94 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound

30 ares in one holding near the route des grands crus. Fresh light crimson with a pink tinge. The bouquet is a little more reticent than the Clos Vougeot today, but with more weight than the Echezeaux. Actually it soon begins to build, offering some rich peony notes alongside the succulent red fruit. Lovely weight at the front of the palate continues all the way through, and the acidity adds its useful freshening touch. Fine long and quite sensual finish. 94-97 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Showing a little more concentration and depth than the Lamarche Echézeaux in 2018 (though that is an impressive wine in its own right), this comes from a single parcel of 0.3ha. With a hint of good reduction on the nose, it’s a savoury, spicy number with some tannic grip to complement the scented berry fruit that’s so typical of this domaine’s wines. 96 points, Tim Atkin MW, Decanter
