Domaine Francois Lamarche La Grande Rue Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1999

$495

This has gone from strength to strength and only seems to get better with each passing year. A lightly menthol-infused nose...ample black fruit and spice aromas seamlessly merging into the rich, full and intense flavors brimming with power and muscle yet this by no means lacks for grace or elegance on the reserved but driving finish. I really like the amount of dry extract here as it relegates the still firm tannins to the background and this should age effortlessly for years to come. Burghound.com

I can’t get past the decomposing rodent on the nose and harsh tannin on the palate, quite disappointing.

I had mixed luck with this wine, but this is a great bottle. Dark red, medium+ body. Dark red fruit, leather and cigar box. Medium+ body, great balance. Absolutely delicious.

Back in LA! Which means back to my cellar! This wine had a better showing than last time. Red and dark fruit, with cigar box and an overall rustic feel. Good acidity and overall tension. Balanced body and long finish. That being said I much prefer the recent vintages of La Grande Rue, as they are more balanced in my opinion.

A slight tangy spearmint on the nose. A separated thing. Off a bit I think

Incredible depth of flavor and clarity. Genuine poise. Very, very, very good. Really beautiful. Consommé burgundy
