Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2004
Winemaking was established in this historic climat as far back the 1360's, with Grand Cru status granted in 1981. All but a monopole, with the Freune family purchasing the estate which takes up almost the entire Clos des Lambrays in 1996. At 8.8Ha it is in fact the largest Grand Cru under single ownership in Bourgogne.
Thierry Brouin has been the winemaker since 1979, with a low interventional, lutte raisonnée approach. Ploughing by horse, and no use of chemicals in the the vineyard.
The climat is divided into three vineyards areas. 'Les Larrets' brings elegance and finesse to the Clos des Lambrays. 'Le Meix-Rentier', at the bottom of the hill, composed of a deeper bed of soil provides the backbone of the wine. 'Les Bouchots' at the northernmost section of the vineyard, has its fruit usually picked at the end of harvest. These three components contribute several distinct facets to the final Grand Cru wine.
Approximately 50% new oak is used for Grand Cru level Lambrays wines.
On the nose the wine evokes, raspberry, rose petal and ripe black cherry. Sumptuous, mouth filling yet structured across the palette with a mineral core. Layered on the long finish. A real energy to this generous wine.

Quick note on Fine Wine purchasing.
When ordering that special bottle of wine it is worth doing a little research before making a purchase. Wine is a living product, which goes through changes and stages of development in the bottle, as well as varying between vintages. If you are considering ordering an older vintage we recommend speaking to a member of staff or using a review site like cellartracker.com to try and get as full a picture as possible of the flavour profile and development of the bottle you are considering.
