Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru
- Burgundy, France
Beautifully, darkly aromatic with plenty of peppery spice. Woody rather than oaky. There’s freshness from the tannins as well as from the acidity and the texture is so silky on the mid palate yet with power on the finish. Refined, flowing, dry and long. Handsome beauty and so easy to taste even with the underlying intensity and power. There’s just a very slight hint of stems but not OTT. Dark elegance.

After 38 years as winemaker at this legendary domaine (which was bought by Bernard Arnault in 2014), Thierry Brouin handed over the baton in 2017 to Boris Champy (formerly of Mouiex, Dominus and latterly – Louis Latour).
