La Grande Rue Cuvee 1959, Domaine François Lamarche 2017
Here the wood treatment is more evident though it's not intrusive on the nose that is, not surprisingly, quite similar to that of the regular cuvée. Interestingly, the medium-bodied flavors are not more concentrated but they are notably finer with superb intensity and minerality on the strikingly long finish that is just a bit more structured. This is classy and beautifully well-balanced and should age accordingly.
