The 2015 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from the domaine’s 0.30 hectare of vine. It has a more intense bouquet than the Echézeaux, as you would expect: red berry fruit, orange zest, hints of tangerine and blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red berry fruit, a touch of spice on the entry, great depth here with a subtle savory, almost meaty element towards the structured finish. This has a lot more to give as it feels tighter on the exit than I expect, so give this several years in the cellar. It may well turn out to be Lamarche’s crown jewel after a few years in bottle.
