La Grande Rue, Domaine François Lamarche 2011
Here the nose is all but mute though aggressive swirling liberates a discreet touch of wood that frames the cool red berry fruit nose that is lavishly spiked with an impressive array of spice notes. There is a sophisticated mouth feel to the supple yet well-detailed middle weight flavors that exude a fine dry extract on the gorgeously complex, persistent and utterly delicious finish. This should also drink well in its youth but amply reward longer-term cellaring.
