Great street makes great difference
Dima and Misha follow the paths of Grand cru. Among the Vosne-Romanée vineyards there are two small, but very important ones: La Grande Rue (1,65 ha) and La Romanée (0,845 ha). These plots clearly illustrate the importance of terroir in winemaking. Only a narrow road separates them, and yet they yield wines that are different in stylistics, depth, complexity and, as a result, in price. Vineyard La Grande Rue was one of the last to acquire a Grand cru status in Vosne-Romanée. Domaine François Lamarche owns it as a monopoly. Meanwhile, La Romanée is surrounded by stories of plots and pieces, old vines and monks, as is wont in the world of true wine. Dima tells an intriguing story of its owners, Liger-Belair family, as well as their connection with the well-known negotiant Bouchard Père & Fils and the faraway hot Chile.
