Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

98 points Wine Enthusiast: A beautiful, pure wine that combines freshness and intense richness. It seems to float while still giving a huge mouthful of plums, coffee and sweet, juicy tannins. A straight line of pure flavor all the way to the finish. Cellar Selection. (Aug 2008)

Louis Joly made improvements to this handsome residence built in 1630 and restored the unity of the property DOMAINE DES LAMBRAYS. In 1866 these works are finished by the new owner Albert-Sebastien Rodier (Maison Henri de Bahèzre from Nuits-Saint-Georges) with his grandsons Camille and Albert. Camille has founded the Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin and Albert managed the family estate in Burgundy. The Rodier family ensured an efficient promotion of their Clos des Lambrays. In 1938 Albert sold the estate to his friend Renée Cosson. Since this moment the estate is “falling in a sleep” like “sleeping beauty” according to Jean-François Bazin. In 1979, shortly after the death of Renée Cosson, the estate was acquired by Roland de Chambure and the brothers Fabien and Louis Saier. They managed to wake up this “sleeping beauty” by important investments and with the support of the oenologist Thierry Brouin. Still today Thierry Brouin is due to his competencies and passion the guarantor for the quality of the wines from the estate. Read less
