It is my birthday, so I am quickly writing up the two wines I am decanting now to drink tonight at
the mass piss-up with wall-to-wall vomiting dinner. This is completely lovely.
Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 1999, Domaine des Lambays en magnum
Ripe, fleshy, gorgious fruit on the nose; completely lovely and highly attractive. There is a real mineral complexity to it which is just great. This in on the border of maturity, it smells like it will improve over the next several years. The palate is also ripe and fleshy, with deeply pleasing soiliness and layers of charming class. This is a really serious mag of Burgundy, really great to drink now and will improve. Sadly this is my last bottle. Bums.
