Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, January 2007

    Produced from the "young vines" from Clos des Lambrays (25-50 years old), this 2005 is a slightly more elevated version of the straight village wine with extra sweet fruit and structure. Primary with ripe cherry and vibrant black grape flavours.

    Score: 91

    Here there is more aromatic elegance as well as depth with a broader spectrum of fruit aromas nuanced by spice and mineral hints that continue onto the rich, vibrant and intense medium full flavors underpinned by suave tannins and a detailed and wonderfully pure finish. Recommended. Drink: 2013+.Notes: a blend of two premiers crus, La Riotte and Le Village plus 50% young vines Clos des Lambrays; this designation was first used in 1999.

    70% young vines from Clos de Lambrays. Lively and sweet. Very mellifluous and full of life. Very lovely. Already full-on charm. Slightly tough of the finish but superior wine.

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.

Morey St. Dénis often suffers from an identity crisis. They are more fruit forward than the wines of Gevrey Chambertin, yet more structured than those of Chambolle Musigny. It seems in this sensethat they are like middle children, always wanting to please yet not standing out as the noisy one or the notably quiet one. They are however crowd pleasers and for those who feel that Gevreys are too muscular and Chambolles too feminine; Moreys seem just right, offering velvety tannins and tangible fruit. The village offers five grand cru vineyards including Clos de la Roche, Clos St. Dénis and Clos des Lambrays which nonetheless can rival those of neighbouring villages in terms of quality (some even view them as the best in the Côte de Nuits) and various premier cru vineyards.
