There is a combined hint of a floral and vegetal component, which is probably a residual effect of the significant percentage of whole cluster in the vinification. Otherwise the nose is composed of pure and elegant red berry fruit aromas liberally laced with stone and earth notes that can also be found on the richer and bigger flavors though it would be fair to say that the '07 Lambrays is a wine of finesse and delicacy rather than concentration and power. In sum, this is pretty rather than deep and while I doubt that it will ever be a charmer, it should offer very good to excellent quality in time. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Jan30,2010.

The 2007 Clos des Lambrays smells of incense, ginger, blond tobacco, salted beef stock, and fresh red berries, all of which mingle on a finely-textured palate, leading to a long finish with hints of caramelized root vegetables and pan scrapings adding further savor to what is already an extremely mouth-watering performance, and one that should be worth attending over at least the next 6-8 years. This displays admirable clarity of flavors – not to mention their complexity – for its vintage.||Thierry Brouin claims that “extreme selectivity and 4,700 bottles of Bourgogne rose” (of which, however, he didn’t open one for me) was his “formula” for 2008 excellence. I last tasted the wines – some lots of which didn’t finish malo until December – assembled from tank just prior to their March bottling. The 2007s were bottled in that month as well, “proper” wines – notes Brouin – “rendered from fruit that didn’t look very good.” Wine Advocate.June, 2010
