Nuits St George Les Cras Lamarche 2016 (750ML)
91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are just one and half barrels of the 2016 Nuits Saint-Georges 1er Cru Aux Cras this year instead of the of the four or five normally produced. It has a gentle bouquet with red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit, just a faint suggestion of menthol bubbling away under the surface. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin that frames the Aux Cras with commendable substance given the impact of the frost. This does not feel as if it lost any energy during the trauma of the early growing season and it has a lovely saline finish. Excellent. Just a shame there is so little!" 12/17
91-93 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound" [Outstanding] "This is arguably the most underrated wine in the Lamarche portfolio as it is virtually always excellent but because it's a Nuits rather than a Vosne, hardly anyone notices. This offers an opportunity to those looking for excellent quality and are not unduly worried about what the label says. Though reduction presently dominates the underlying fruit there is excellent freshness and energy to the intense, concentrated and mineral-driven flavors that flash outstanding power on the focused, sappy and super-saline finish. In 2016 this is the most promising of the Lamarche 1ers." 01/18
