Domaine des Lambrays is an estate which we have long followed. More recently it has been in the news after its purchase by LVMH. Winemaker of over thirty years, Thierry Brouin, continues at the helm. It will, however, be interesting to see how the wines develop as further investment from LVMH is provided but having produced outstanding wines in 2014 and 2015, the 2016 has continued an apparently upward trend. The domaine has crafted a sublime Clos des Lambrays in 2016.
NB: Pricing for Domaine des Lambrays will be published late this week.
Domaine des Lambrays, Clos des Lambrays 2016
This Clos des Lambrays is immediately striking for its purity, its perfume, its sweet fruit and its incredible definition. While there is an increasing amount of talk of stem use in Burgundy, this shows true mastery of an otherwise too often misapplied technique. The glorious sweet, ripe fruit caresses the palate, with incredibly fine tannins further contributing to the lustrous, silky texture. The delineation, focus and direction are remarkable. A fantastic Clos des Lambrays. Drink 2025-2038
*We regret that, just like all fine wine merchants, we are unable to sell leading Grand Cru and Premier Cru or wines from particularly sought after domaines in isolation – we cannot buy them from the domaines that way ourselves and we are aware that demand is sure to outstrip supply. Instead of running a complex system of allocations, we aim to confirm requests shortly after they are made or highlight where we are unable to assist or where a balance might be required to secure a particularly desirable wine.
