Collection: Domaine des Lambrays, 2022

↓ Jump to the wines

Domaine des Lambrays is one of the most historic in the entire region with written reference to the Clos des Lambrays in 1365.

Since the takeover by LVMH in 2014, huge investment has poured in, culminating in the latest epoch for this winery on the completion of their new cuverie which was finished in 2020. This is a hugely important moment. The estate knew it had many different terroirs even within the Clos des Lambrays itself, yet with massive vats, they could only do so much. The fruit was picked and vinified together. Now, Clos des Lambrays is produced from no less than 11 plots – each picked at absolute optimal ripeness and vinified separately and the results are clear to see and taste; since 2020 Neal Martin has awarded a potential 97 points, then 98 in 2021 and now 98 again 2022.

Demand is causing the price of Clos des Lambrays to position upwards but only 5 Burgundies from 2022 score higher from Martin…including la Tâche, La Romanée Conti, and Chambertin Clos de Beze from Rousseau – which are between 10x to 35x more expensive.
