Tasting Notes:

Cinnamon and sandalwood mark the aromas in this soft, cooked black cherry- and oak-tinged red. Dense tannins hold court on the finish. Drink now through 2012. 75 cases imported.

Tasting Notes:

Produced from declassified Clos des Lambrays (50% of the final assemblage) and two premier cru vineyards, La Riotte and the little known Le Village, the 2003 Morey-St.-Denis Les Loups is the finest I’ve tasted from Domaine des Lambrays. It displays black raspberry, plum, blackberry, and boldly spicy aromas. On the palate, this medium to full-bodied wine is ample, satin-textured, and reveals gorgeous depth as well as richness. Chocolate-covered blackberries are intermingled with spices, asphalt, and black raspberries in its ripe, structured, persistent character. Projected maturity: 2009-2017.

description Producer information Professional reviews

In 1979 Thierry Brouin took the helm of this famous domaine, best known for its namesake vineyard, the Clos de Lambrays which was granted Grand Cru status under his tenure in 1981. The estate itself was bought by LVMH recently, though Thierry stayed on and as yet there have been few, if any, noticeable changes. A highlight of any visit to Domaine des Lambrays is a saunter around the house’s gorgeous gardens: Grand Cru horticulture at its finest.
