Domaine Francois lamarche Echezeaux 2009
Since 1797, on the prestigious terroirs of Vosne-Romanée and Vougeot, our vineyards have offered the Estate their precious fruit. From these terroirs , we produce fourteen different wines, including la Grande Rue, a monopole of the Estate, one of the rare grands crus of Vosne-Romanée.
Very dark, full and deep ruby-red colour, still youthful. This has a full nose, still tightly bound in expression, with ripe black plum aromas, dark herbs and mineral notes, the fruit quite primary. Full-bodied, this is solidly packed with deep and lusciously rich flavours of dark red and black berry fruits, and shiny oak in the background. The palate is firmly packed and densely concentrated with a firm, grainy textured line. The acidity is ripe and soft and the flavours are somewhat monolithic in drive. Sweet black fruit and oak notes linger on the finish with dry textures prevailing-. This is a modern Echezeaux with ripe black fruit flavours. It should develop nuance over the next 9-12 years.
