Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2015 (6148)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Morey-St-Denis
Pinot Noir

Tim Atkin MW: Made with 100% whole bunches, at it nearly always is, this is one of the most recognisable Burgundies of all in a blind tasting, with notes of peaty Islay malt whisky, sappy, stemmy tannins and complex, savoury, meaty red berry and tobacco notes. The underlying acidity brings a welcome freshness to the finish. 2022-30. 95 Points

 

Wine Spectator: Aromatic, offering hints of lavender, menthol and orange peel, but on the palate this becomes an immutable block, with a kernel of cherry, black currant, licorice and mineral flavors locked within. The tannins have the upper hand now, but this should develop well. 96 Points

 

 

Decanter: Sweet, elegant raspberry nose with lovely poise and clarity of fruit. A sleek attack, pure and delicate but not lacking in intensity. Finely textured but there's no lack of firm tannins coasting beneath the fruit. Beautifully balanced and very long, with beguiling finesse on the finish. (Drink between 2019-2035). 97 Points

 

Burghound: Here too the nose is quite ripe yet very fresh with its layered array of spicy and markedly floral-inflected black cherry and plum scents that are trimmed in both discreet wood and menthol nuances. There is impressive size, weight and power to the more mineral-driven and refined medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by a distinctly firm tannic spine on the wonderfully persistent and mildly austere finale. This is first-rate and one serious wine in 2015 and thus be prepared to allow it at least 10 to 12 years first. (Drink starting 2027). 94 Points

Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

Healthy dark red. Pure but tight aromas of raspberry, spices, rose petal, licorice and herbs. Densely packed and vibrant--impressively so for a 2015--with notes of bitter orange rind and peppery herbs accenting its flavors of red berries, brown spices, menthol, mocha and underbrush. Very savory wine with terrific spicy depth, as well as more punch than the 2016. Finishes very firm and extremely long, with serious but refined tannins and superb lift. An outstanding vintage for this grand cru, this wine combines the best characteristics of 2005 and 2010, and that's a formula for longevity and greatness. (Drink between 2027-2043)

John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

The 2015 Clos des Lambrays includes ninety-five percent whole clusters this year and is a stunning wine in the making. The bouquet is deep, pure and very expressive out of the blocks, soaring from the glass in a blaze of black plums, sweet cassis, espresso, woodsmoke, gamebird, raw cocoa, a great base of dark soil tones and a nice framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with laser like focus, great balance and grip and a very long, fine-grained and vibrant finish. This will take at least a decade to blossom, but it will be a great wine in the fullness of time. 2025-2075+.
