Tasting Notes

  • BURG3

    Burghound, October 2001,
    Score: 91

    Bright pinot and black cherry notes followed by juicy, almost succulent medium weight flavors that offer bacon, smoke and sweet, sappy pinot extract all highlighted by an intense minerality and fine length. The tannins are ripe and show a certain dusty quality to them. As is often the case with Clos des Lambrays, this is not especially big or powerful but very stylish and classy with fine potential. Drink: 2007-2012.Notes: produced from yields of 45 hl/ha in two large parcels of differing vine ages - one that is approximately two-thirds of the blend at 45 years of age and a second, smaller group of vines that is approximately 20 years of age.

    Still incredibly fresh and backward but otherwise the note from 750 ml is accurate: Reserved black cherry notes and pinot fruit followed by medium weight flavors of bacon, smoke and sappy pinot extract all highlighted by an intense minerality and fine length. This has added a good deal of weight and seems more powerful than before yet it remains very stylish and classy with excellent potential. Drink: try from 2016.

    Reserved black cherry notes and pinot fruit followed by medium weight flavors of bacon, smoke and sappy pinot extract all highlighted by an intense minerality and fine length. This has added a good deal of weight and seems more powerful than before yet it remains very stylish and classy with excellent potential. There is so much baby fat that this could be approached now with food but it seems a shame to waste such fine potential so young. Still, if you're inclined, this is impressive now. Drink 2009+.

    I was quite surprised to find just how open for business this was in magnum format as I expected something far more reserved but such was not the case. A beautiful and highly expressive nose of ripe black cherry, earth and the hallmark red pinot fruit is followed by medium weight yet concentrated flavors of bacon, smoke and sappy pinot extract that are given lift and verve by the intense minerality and outstanding length. This has added a good deal of weight and seems more powerful than before yet it remains very stylish and classy with excellent potential though like the same wine in 750 ml (see herein), this is so well balanced and harmonious that it could easily be drunk now with pleasure. That said, unless you are lucky enough to have this in quantity, I would counsel cellaring it for another 5 to 10 years. In a word, terrific. Drink: 2014+.

    Medium-full colour. Rich, ample and juicy. Good stylish fruit. Very ripe. Very harmonious and very elegant. A delicate wine, particularly if one compares it to Clos de Tart and most Bonnes-Mares. But this is the essential character of the climat. Good intensity. Good definition. Long. Fine. Drink 2007.

Domaine des Lambrays

This Morey Saint Denis domaine may have passed through various owners over the recent decades, but one noticeably steadfast mark on Burgundy’s landscape has been Thierry Brouin, making the wines at this iconic estate since 1979 until his retirement in 2017. His signature style of whole bunch vinification for the grand cru has carved an esteemed place for Thierry in Burgundy’s story. The domaine was recently purchase by Bernard Arnault of LVMH, and a new régisseur has been installed. Boris Champy has nearly 10 years’ experience in the Côte d’Or working at Louis Latour, and before that in California and Bordeaux. He and Thierry worked closely alongside each other in 2017, ensuring a smooth handover. Tantalisingly short of a monopole, the domaine owns 8.66 hectares of the 8.8 ha Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru in the heart of Morey Saint Denis. As well as the substantial Clos, the domaine also has vines in premier cru and village sites within Morey, and added two small premier cru plots in Puligny Montrachet in the 1990s.

Clos des Lambrays

Clos des Lambrays is a Grand Cru appellation situated in the commune of Morey St Denis in the Cote de Nuits. The 8.8 hectares of land, largely owned by the Saier family, were elevated from Premier Cru to Grand Cru status in 1979 as the vineyards clearly had huge potential. Nestled between Gevrey Chambertin to the north and Chambolle Musigny to the south the best Clos des Lambrays wines combine the feminine delicacy of Chambolle with the power and structure of Gevrey.
