Tasting Notes

A pungent if highly complex nose is comprised by discreet notes of wood toast, menthol, spice, violet, plum and an interesting smoky nuance. There is slightly more volume and power to the big-bodied, intense and once again sleekly muscular flavors that possess a slightly finer mouthfeel, all wrapped in firm, sappy and very firm finale that exhibits slightly less youthful austerity. This is a classically styled Grands Ech and should age like one as well.

The 2015 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from the domaine's 0.30 hectare of vine. It has a more intense bouquet than the Echézeaux, as you would expect: red berry fruit, orange zest, hints of tangerine and blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, a touch of spice on the entry, great depth here with a subtle savory, almost meaty element towards the structured finish. This has a lot more to give as it feels tighter on the exit than I expect, so give this several years in the cellar. It may well turn out to be Lamarche's crown jewel after a few years in bottle. Drink Date 2022 - 2045
