Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Francois Lamarche La Grande Rue Pinot Noir 2013

Rated 96 by Robert Parker
The 2013 La Grande Rue has a very pure bouquet, quite floral with touches of dried rose petals and small red cherries that are soon overtaken by raspberry preserve, cranberry and gravel scents. The palate is medium-bodied with gently caressing tannin that coat the mouth. This is very intense, very structured but not overwhelming with a saline tang right on the finish. This is one of the best La Grande Rue that I have tasted from barrel. Wonderful.
Rated 94 by Decanter
Like the Clos de Vougeot there is just enough reduction present to mask the fruit and render a proper assessment of the nose difficult. There is good volume and richness to the mineral-inflected and velvety medium weight flavors that possess solid mid-palate density on the balanced, intense and impressively lengthy finish. I very much like the fine grain to the tannins and this too should amply repay extended keeping yet be approachable after only 6 to 8 years of cellar time. (Burghound)

Winery Domaine Francois Lamarche

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Regularly described as being the grape varietal responsible for producing the world's most romantic wines, Pinot Noir has long been associated with elegance and a broad range of flavors The name means 'black pine' in French, and this is due to the fact that the fruit of this particular varietal is especially dark in color, and hangs in a conical shape, like that of a pine cone. Despite being grown today in almost every wine producing country, Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape variety to cultivate. This is because it is especially susceptible to various forms of mold and mildew, and thrives best in steady, cooler climates. However, the quality of the fruit has ensured that wineries and vintners have persevered with the varietal, and new technologies and methods have overcome many of the problems it presents. Alongside this, the wide popularity and enthusiasm for this grape has ensured it will remain a firm favorite amongst wine drinkers for many years to come.

Region: Burgundy

The beautiful region of Burgundy in France is famously home to some of the most exquisite red wines to be found anywhere on earth, and is most commonly associated with the silky, elegant and flavorful Pinot Noir varietal wines which are commonly produced there. However, the superb and mineral rich soils fed by the Rhone river, and the long hot summers and mild autumns of the region produce a wide variety of fine grapes, and as such, Burgundy produces plenty of different wines which are equally as good as the produce the region is famed for. The region of Burgundy itself has a wine-making history which stretches back at least two thousand years, and as such, it comes as no surprise that the wineries which fill the dozens of controlled appellations of the region rely heavily on traditional methods and techniques when it comes to producing their famous wines.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
