2017 Domaine Francois Lamarche Grands-Echezeaux (3L)
We have 1 in stock.
The 2017 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from 0.30 hectares of vine. It has a tightly wound bouquet at first – one of the few crus from Lamarche to demand coaxing from the glass. It eventually reveals some lovely raspberry preserve, wild strawberry and subtle Seville orange marmalade scents, all very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, and more structure and backbone than the Echézeaux, leading to a fresh and quite saline finish. This will need five or six years in bottle, but there is very good potential here. (Drink between 2023-2042) 93-95 points - Neal Martin 2017 Burgundy: A Modern Classic (Jan 2019), 1/1/2019,
