History

Ancestors of the Lamarche family were already established in the village of Vosne-Romanée in around 1740. Since the end of the 19 th century (for five generations), the estate has grown bigger over the years: Henri Lamarche, a cooper, married Marie Grivelet from Chambolle-Musigny and founded the estate at the beginning of the 20 th century He produced, matured and already sold his wines directly from the estate.

 

Their son, Henri Lamarche, born in 1903, took over the estate. He inherited la Grande Rue in 1933, the year of his marriage to Aline Demur (la Grande Rue would become a grand cru for the INAO in 1989, the decree being passed in 1992). They would have four children, including François and Geneviève.

 

François took over the 'reins' of the estate when his father died in 1985. Today, there are two generations to welcome you at the estate: François Lamarche and his wife, Marie-Blanche, are in charge, respectively, of the winemaking and sales. Geneviève Lamarche (the sister of François) manages the accounts, Nicole (François and Marie-Blanche's daughter) is taking over the viti-vinicultural part, under the watchful eye of her father, and Nathalie (Geneviève's daughter) the sales part with her aunt.

Vineyards

Half way between Dijon, the capital of the region of Burgundy, and Beaune, the capital of Burgundy wine, between the Clos de Vougeot and Nuits Saint Georges, Vosne-Romanée, securely rooted into its venerable cellars, is – thanks to its great wines – one of the French wine-producing villages which are the best known throughout the world. The vines face due east and its grand appellations run down alongside the church as far as the Priory of Saint Vivant.

 

From a 'geological' point of view, the grands crus lie on oolite in ferruginous limestone soils - with stony, rocky or clay-marl subsoil - which give full-bodied, well-structured wines, deep in colour and with greater ageing capacity. The Vosne-Romanée AOC vineyards are planted on deeper, clay-limestone soils and produce lighter wines, with more subtle aromas, and which develop more quickly.

Wine Moments

 Clive Coates / MW, Wine Writer (France)  tasted  1 wines  from  Francois Lamarche . In a tasting of  5 wines 

Richebourg 1999 Domaine Méo Camuzet / The Méo Camuzet domaine holds adjoining land in Vosne-Romanée, Les Brulées,  Richebourg and Vosne-Romanée, Cros Parentoux, going up the hill. This is the grandest of the three. Full bodied, still very vigorous, with a certain amount of residual tannin, and rich, sturdy and profound. It develops splendidly in the glass to provide a wine of real dimension and class. A very fine bottle.

 Christer Byklum , Wine Writer (Norway)  tasted  1 wines  from  Francois Lamarche . In a tasting of  111 wines 

2008 Blain-Gagnard Le Montrachet, tasted blind. It needed hours to open up, it started out quite yellow fruity with playful minerality below. After three hours it became far more nuanced, layers of citrus, minerals, apples, floral notes and the balance of this wine was out of this world. Minutes of aftertaste. I thought it was Domaine d’Auvenay Chevalier-Montrachet. 98p

 Clive Coates / MW, Wine Writer (France)  tasted  1 wines  from  Francois Lamarche . In a tasting of  51 wines 

Romanée-Conti, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 2009 / Just a little less colour than the Tache. Not a lot on the nose at present. You have to go searching for it. What there is is very poised and very harmonious as well as being very complex and classy. The fruit is more red flavoured than the Tache. Marvelously fine and intense. Really quite excellent. 20 points

 Clive Coates / MW, Wine Writer (France)  tasted  1 wines  from  Francois Lamarche . In a tasting of  44 wines 

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Romanée-Conti 2010 / 20.0 points.


Fine colour. Aromatic, minerally nose. Not as fat as La Tache or Richebourg. A bit more of the stems. Best on the follow through. Very, very lovely complex fruit. Marvelous long, lingering finish. Truly excellent.
