“Lamarche is now a top domaine, with wines which express themselves through their subtlety rather than their power. Since 1999, and more especially since 2005, the quality has been top-knotch. This is now a three star domaine.” – Clive Coates

“La Grande Rue is a thin strip of land lying between La Tache and Romanée-Saint-Vivant, La Romanée-Conti and La Romanée. The wine it produces has been classed, if not quite as highly as Romanée-Conti and Richebourg right at the top of the tree, at least in the very next rank, i.e. alongside La Tache and Romanée-Saint-Vivant, by the Abbé Courtépée in the 18th century, and his succssors Dr. Denis Morelot and Jules Lavalle in the 19th…La Grande Rue, in my view, is a more feminine wine than La Tache. It is closer to Romanée-Saint-Vivant.” – Clive Coates

Lamarche La Grande Rue 2014
6 bottles available, $550 per bottle

95 points Burghound: “Here there is less wood in evidence but also noticeably better complexity to the exceptionally spicy nose of plum, earth, Asian-style tea and pronounced floral scents. This is really quite refined as the caressing mid-palate is pure silk which contributes significantly to the sense of elegance of the medium weight flavors that are blessed with very fine concentration as well as plenty of palate coating dry extract on the markedly firm but not hard finale. This impeccably well-balanced effort should amply reward extended cellaring.” 

Lamarche La Grande Rue 2013
10 bottles available, $395 per bottle
1 six-bottle OWC case available, $2,400 per case

97 points Wine Advocate: “Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 La Grande Rue Grand Cru has a backward and broody bouquet, very complex with hints of woodland, damp earth and fern filtering through the tightly wound red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple and very fine, almost filigree tannins. The acidity is beautifully judged here — very focused and refined, seamless towards the sophisticated finish. This is one of the best vintages of La Grand Rue that I have tasted, which is a considerable achievement given that this was not an exemplary growing season.”  

Lamarche La Grande Rue 2012
1 six-bottle OWC case available, $2,400 per case

93 points Burghound: “There is just enough wood to notice framing the red currant, black cherry and plum aromas that also display pretty floral and spice notes. There is fine concentration, power and punch to the refined and classy middle weight flavors that possess excellent intensity on the balanced, mouth coating, velvety and beautifully persistent finish. This too will need at least a decade plus of bottle age.”
