Domaine des Lambrays are finding it easier to sell all of their wine these days. Good for them, they make delicious wine. I must try and charm the winemaker, Thierry Brouin, into giving me an allocation.
Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru les Folatieres 2007
Lovely, lovely fruit and minerality. There is something floral about it, too. Real depth of flavour on the palate but it remains light and stylish.
Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru Clos du Cailleret 2007
Large scale nose but it has a degree of elegance that really pleases. Dense and weighty but with lovely, lovely minerality. Class, old stick, class.
Morey Saint Denis 2007
A charm-ridden fruit bomb. Lovely tannins. Quite classy.
Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2007
This seems a bit closed, but there is a great depth to the nose. The palate has good balance between fruit, tannins and acidity. Very complex. Perhaps not a long life ahead of it but it will provide a lot of pleasure.
Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2006
Nice ripe fruit on the nose which really titillates. Lovely ripe tannins that frame the fruit very nicely. This is quite delicious.
Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 1999
A very young, closed nose, but you can smell the lovely fruit and stunning complexity. The palate has fruit, spice and lovely tannin. Serious, serious kit.
Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 1993
An earthy, meaty character to it. It has quite a lot of power. The palate is really powerful too, with good minerality there as well. This is really rather good.
