Lamarche has four Vosne-Romanée 1er Crus: La Croix Rameau, Aux Malconsorts, Les Suchots and this wine, made from half a hectare in Les Chaumes. Sadly we do not yet get an allocation of these other vineyards—hopefully we will in the future (as soon as a harvest with decent yields comes on the market). Les Chaumes is located right under Aux Malconsorts and La Tâche and, at this address, produces fine-boned, perfumed and sensual Vosne. Lamarche’s vines here are now between 30 and 40-years-old and, again, this was fermented with 30% whole bunches.

Reviews

“The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Chaumes captures the florality of the appellation with bunches of rose petals, a hint of peony that complements the red berry fruit (Morello and raspberry preserve). The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly crunchy tannin. I love the purity here, the energy contained within, precise and focused with a little more spiciness on the finish compared to the village cru. As it aerates I noticed darker fruit emerging plus a slight chalkiness to the tannin. Excellent—this may actually surpass the 2015 Chaumes.”
