BH 95
"Interestingly, this is actually quite similar to the nose of the Grands Ech but it's arguably even spicier and quite cool in the context of the 2018 vintage along with a top note of menthol. The pliant medium-bodied flavors possess a decidedly sleek mouthfeel though the tension really builds from the mid-palate to the firm, dusty and very serious finish that offers outstanding length. Patience strongly advised as this is definitely resolutely structured. In a word, excellent." -Allen Meadow

AG 95
"The 2018 La Grande Rue Grand Cru is the famous 1.65-hectare monopole of the domaine that runs parallel to Romanée-Conti and La Romanée on the other side of the road. It has a well-defined bouquet of dark cherries, raspberry, wild hedgerow and traces of Chinese tea, developing tertiary notes after a couple of minutes in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, a satin-like texture and just the right amount of acidity. The caressing, slightly gourmand finish displays hints of meat juices and a subtle savory aspect lends complexity. Very fine." -Neal Martin

"Nicole Lamarche's wines never overwhelm you with colour or extract, preferring grace and charm to full-throttle flavours. This is a case in point: a gentle, aromatic, sweetly beguiling expression of this 1.65ha monopoly vineyard with tobacco pouch aromas, spicy red cherry and wild strawberry fruit and fine-grained tannins. A Pinot lover's Grand Cru red."
