 Tasted by acyso on 9/19/2015 & rated 70 points: HDH auction tasting at Tru; 9/18/2015-9/19/2015: There's a nice red fruit aroma on the nose, but alongside is that awful aroma of green. Pyrazine? But the nose is promising enough. The palate is awful. Bitter, stemmy, and hollow. (764 views)
 Tasted by Tavastgatan on 2/7/2015 & rated 91 points: @Fred_Lund: This turns into a very sofisticated Barolo with air. Elegance and charm. 91-92p. (852 views)
 Tasted by FamilyLarsson on 12/17/2014 & rated 91 points: Provades sisa vid sida med Grivot Echezeaux, även den från 2011.
Grivot var ett klart bättre vin med en helt annan elegans och komplexitet.
Denna känns kraftfullare och modernare i stilen. Mörk kraftfull frukt med lite kärnbeska. Provades blint och kändes helt obegripligt att bägge var från samma vingård och samma årgång. Grivot tog man direkt som en Vosne-Romanee men Lamarche kändes bredvid som något helt annat. Men givetvis ett väldigt bra vin. (775 views)
 Tasted by Burgundy Al on 4/6/2014: Knightsbridge 2011 Burgundy Tasting and Sale (Northbrook, IL): Tasting, brief note. Restrained red and black berries to start, more energy and density emerge on powerful finish. Another highlight today. (1714 views)
 Tasted by peternelson on 11/20/2012 & rated 92 points: Complex with minerals, red-blue fruit, a little animal fur and spice with a subtle green nuance; ripe concentrated fruit in the mouth with fine tannins; fuller, ample, long finish. 92-93. Very impressed with Lamarche's lineup. Tasted at the Domaine with Nicole. (1639 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
