Nicole Lamarche Grand Cru Clos de Vougeot 2019


Lamarche’s 1.35 hectares of vineyards in the Clos de Vougeot are situated over three terroirs: one is at the top of the Clos near the Château (actually there are two small parcels in the area known as Montiotes Hautes); another is in the middle tranche on the Vosne side (Petits Maupertuis); and the remaining parcel is lower down near the RN74 (Baudes Basses). All three parcels are picked at the same time and co-fermented in open-top wooden vats.

As you might expect, Nicole Lamarche vinifies a much finer, prettier expression of the Clos—very Vosne in style. That said, a terroir can’t completely change its spots, and in the context of this producer you will naturally find more power and more mineral, savoury structure compared to the other wines listed here.


There is no great depth of colour here in the Lamarche pink-purple style. A little bit of red cherry bouquet starts to emerge. Considerable weight on the palate, the oak shows a little more, but as with the other wines they are in harmony. 93-95 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Lamarche has three parcels in the Clos de Vougeot. There is one up by the château by Mugneret-Gibourg; one in the middle near Petit Maupertuis and one along the road by Faiveley. The gentle extraction and long ageing have given us a wine with pronounced ripe cherry fruit and a mineral edge. The texture is firm and remarkably refined, with an elegant tannic structure that is perfectly balanced with the evocative fruit. 94 points, Charles Curtis MW, Decanter
