2020 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays

$499.99
2020 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays

We have special pricing today on 2020 Lambrays, and we are offering these bottles at the lowest price in the world. One of the great producers of Burgundy, Domaine de Lambrays, is an address that has always been at the top of the list for Burgundy buyers. It's an estate from which we have had countless memorable bottles, and though the old guard is now gone after the Domaine was purchased, the new releases have been truly exceptional. 2020 is a stand-out vintage for Lambrays, as it is one of the top examples ever made here, with big notes across the board. Powerful and concentrated but with superb elegance and complexity, it's magnificent. While it's not a cheap date, at this pricing, it's definitely one to consider, and these bottles are also in stock now!

Jasper Morris MW (Inside Burgundy) 96-98 points! "I tasted five of the 11 individual parcellaire cuvées – everything makes it in to the final blend except for the young vine block notes in the Morey 1er Cru. Jacques is adamant that the final wine should respect the totality of the Clos. Then we tried the blend: already, this seems to have taken on a deeper colour than any of the individual cuvees. Deep dense dark fruit, with a powerful underlying dark raspberry with some more lifted rose petal notes. Probably 85% whole bunch overall but the power of the fruit stops this taking the lead. It does underpin the whole though, especially on the palate, while there is also a crystalline limestone purity behind the sweetly ripe red berry fruit. The 2020 Lambrays has more heart to it than most vintages I have tasted in barrel. There is a fine long finish, a little liquorice touch, a complex and ageworthy Lambrays. Delicacy with a strong tensile thread. Tannins by analysis are very significant but you don’t see them. From now on, the wine will spend a second winter in barrel each year. I toyed with not giving the wine 5 stars, to leave the new team something to aim at, but the wine merits the top classification."

Decanter (Charles Curtis MW) 97 points! "Jacques Devauges keeps each portion of the Clos des Lambrays separate throughout the growing season, winemaking and maturation. The final assemblage of each part, however, is synergistically better than any of the separate sections, and there are elements of lovely bright fruit, impressive complexity and dense structure along with fresh, lively and youthful exuberance that all co-exist. A tour de force of winemaking that manages to express the profound nature of the Clos des Lambrays. (Drink between 2025 - 2060)"

Vinous (Neil Martin) 96 points! "The 2020 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru has quite a ripe and generous nose, much more intense than the ’21, with scents of cranberry, wild strawberry, potpourri and oyster shell. It’s very well delineated considering the warmth of the growing season. The palate is marked by svelte tannins, just a touch of Asian spice that infuses the red fruit and a hint of graphite towards the poised finish. Just divine. Tasted at the Clos des Lambrays vertical in Morey-Saint-Denis."

Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 96 points! "Revisited in bottle, the 2020 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru unwinds in the glass with a deep bouquet of cassis, wild berries, rose petals, sweet spices and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's rich and textural, with an ample core of fruit, beautifully powdery tannins and lively acids, concluding with a long, mouthwatering finish. Youthfully reserved, like many 2020s, this nonetheless stands out as the finest Clos des Lambrays of the 21st century—for now!"

Burghound 95 points!  Restrained, cool and elegant aromas are comprised of ripe poached plum, dark currant, anise, rose petal and a hint of earth. The succulent, concentrated and relatively powerful larger-scaled flavors exude evident salinity on the firm, serious, complex and beautifully persistent finale. Patience strongly suggested because while this could very likely be approached after only 7 to 8 years, it should fully repay 15+ years of keeping. (Drink starting 2035)
