Marks and reviews
In the heart of Morey-Saint-Denis in the Côte de Nuits, Domaine des Lambrays owns almost all of the "Clos des Lambrays" Grand Cru, whose exceptional terroir gives rise to wines recognised as among the most illustrious in Burgundy.
The luxury group LVMH, enchanted by the passion, skill and high standards embodied by this Burgundy estate that, acquired it in 2014 and set its mission to ensure sustainability, notably through high-precision working the plots, certified organic farming and an ongoing conversion to biodynamics. The group also renovated the winery and acquired new plots in 2021.
This Grand Cru is a Clos des Lambrays wine, almost fully owned by Domaine des Lambrays which has 8.24 hectares. The plot on gentle slopes gives a diversity of ideal exposures. The top of the Clos has a marly soil while the lower part is clay-limestone.
Following the bud phase in April, the warm and rainy weather sped up the growth cycle and the vines entered the leafy stage quickly. Flowering took place 18 days early, at the end of May. Despite a rainy spring from April to June any risk to the vineyard was avoided. The summer season was sunny, hot and dry, allowing historically early harvests that started on 25 August. The yield was healthy, with perfectly balanced grapes at full ripeness.
Winemaking and ageing
Whole harvest vinification (80%). Long fermentation then ageing for between 14 and 18 months in oak casks renewed for half of each vintage in the estate’s cellars.
This Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2018 from Domaine des Lambrays is 100% Pinot Noir.
