Domaine François Lamarche - La Grande Rue, Monopole

Hand picked, 80 to 100% de-stemmed depending on the vintage. Vatting period of about 15 to 18 days, in open oak vats at a low temperature (controlled by thermo-regulation).

Depending on your personal tastes and the vintage, between 6 and 35 years.

Tasting Note

A deep rich colour opens proceedings with the Grande Rue and the bouquet is at first delicate and a touch spicy, with plenty of promise but no desire to reveal everything at this very early stage. There is a wealth of brisk red fruit, good oak integration and a core of concentration towards the back of the palate. Unsurprising, this needs time in the cellar, but expect a super wine when it is ready.
