The Lamarche Echézeaux comes from three lieux-dits: Les Cruots ou Vignes, Blanches Clos-Saint-Denis, and Les Champs Traversins. Altogether these parcels make up about 1.32 hectares and the vines are about 30-years-old on average. Nicole Lamarche works with very low yields here, which, alongside the Domaine’s delicate extraction, results in a supremely elegant expression of this terroir. This is another sensual, silky Echézeaux from the Lamarche cousins—fabulous perfume and detail along with loads of juicy raspberry and spices. It never veers outside the confines of Larmarche’s signature of purity and elegance. Aged entirely in used oak, there’s more breadth here than the Les Chaumes—as one might expect—yet the same sense of energy and floral prettiness.

Reviews

“A beautifully layered blend is comprised by notes of a wide range of floral and spice elements that add elegance and breadth to the panoply of red berry fruit aromas. There is terrific intensity to the powerful, indeed even robust, big-bodied flavors that flex a taut muscularity on the serious, firm and youthfully austere finale. This is a big Echézeaux and one that is going to require extended bottle age, in fact 15 years may not be entirely sufficient so I would suggest not buying this in the hopes of good early drinking.”
