2014 Clos des Lambrays Domaine des Lambrays



Scored at up to 95 points by Neal Martin, this wine will “put a smile on the face of those that adore refined Burgundy”. Domaine des Lambrays was transformed with the arrival of genius winemaker Thierry Brouin in 1980. Brouin oversaw the winery’s ascent to glory, securing its promotion to Grand Cru status just a year later. This 2014 was his penultimate vintage at the helm and, happily, it looks like a tremendous wine. To Neal Martin, the 2014 is a “great” Clos de Lambrays, “very classic in style” and with serious cellaring potential. Such is the prestige the label now commands that the Domaine was recently purchased by the luxury goods giant LVMH, making it part of a portfolio of icons that include Cheval Blanc, Chateau d’Yquem, Dom Perignon and Krug to name but a few and giving a good indication of the quality now on show.

The 2014 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is matured in 50% new oak and is 100% whole bunch fruit. It is blessed with a winsome bouquet. As usual, there is something very natural, unimposing and refined on the nose: blackberry and briary, a hint of graphite, a subtle leafiness maybe, and yet delineated and very pure. The palate is lively and energetic with crisp tannin, black rather than red fruit, linear and very classic in style with what you might call a "cool" marine-influenced finish that has fine salinity. What a great Clos des Lambrays that will put a smile on the face of those that adore refined Burgundy. December 2015. www.robertparker.com Drink 2017-2040.
