About This Wine

Lambray's 2018 has incredible depth and length, boasting serious structure and layered complexity. Anyone who has been lucky enough to have old bottles of Clos des Lambrays knows how impressive the wines can be. Their 1949 is the most famous example.

In the monograph he penned on the Clos des Lambrays site, French wine writer Charles Quintesson described it as "iron hands in velvet gloves." The site blends the muscle that you'd find in one of Gevrey's Grand Crus with the finesse and suave tannins that you find in Chambolle's. Lambrays dazzles, but there's also a comforting element to it that I love.

The 2018 Lambrays possesses powerful savory notes of leather and topsoil along with floral and spice-accented high notes. Everything is presented in an intensely punchy and rugged fashion. It's hard not to be in awe of its unyielding and multifaceted character.
