2011 Grands Echezeaux Francois Lamarche

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 93.5 points



A beautifully complex and distinctly floral nose brings together notes of admirably fresh red and blue pinot fruit, anise, exotic tea and spice nuances. There is excellent volume to the big-bodied, intense and seductively textured medium weight plus flavors, all wrapped in a powerful and long finish. Like the Malconsorts, this is really quite impressive. Tasted: Jan 15, 2014. Drink: 2021+



Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Grands Echézeaux 2011 from Lamarche clearly has more fruit concentration than the offering from Albert Bichot: raspberry and wild strawberry racing out of the blocks, subtle wilted rose petal scents and minerality. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins, plenty of tart cherries and strawberry notes that gently build in the mouth. There is a gentle grip here and some unresolved oak to be subsumed, but there is great substance and length – the standout wine from Lamarche this year. eRobertParker.com.November, 2014
