My favorite wine of this year’s La Paulée de San Francisco Burgundy event in March was 2006 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays. It was poured at what’s called the Vertical Tasting, where top Burgundy producers offer three vintages each of one of their signature wines. Winemaker Thierry Brouin poured the 2010, 2006 and 2003. All three were delicious, possessing long finishes one expects from a Burgundy grand cru. The 2006, however, was particularly elegant.  
 
Here’s the note: Light red color with pale meniscus; aromatic, dried roses, cranberry, very tart cherry nose; delicious, elegant, tart cherry, tart raspberry, mineral, roses palate; long finish 95+ points

  • It is hard to choose just one, but if you like dessert wine and you have never had a bottle of Dolce, do yourself a favor and plop down the $50-75 bucks and buy a bottle. This is one of the few wines I have had that rival the great Sauternes (not including Yquem--let's not fall too far into hyperbole). Near perfect balance--great acidity, fruit and just the right amount of sweetness. Outstanding.

  • Have you ever done a review on Red Mare Wine? Their Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc are amazing. I haven't tried their Chardonnay yet.
