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.
