the nose took a bit to open ... ripe fruits, tea leaves, spices and undergrowth. On the palate the attack is fruity a little sweet, mid-palate on spices and a long enough finish. The acidity could have been a little stronger, but the concentration replaces this lack I think. Mid body structure. After 1 hour the wine built up more tannins structure a true chameleon. Ever changing in the glass....what an experience!

Engaging with notes of cherry and olives. A bit simple with short finish but very accessible wine. Opened and poured after about 15 minutes of air — 6 hours ago
Savory, earthy, and rustic with just subtle hints of cherry on the finish. Flavor profile is fairly straightforward, but the wine has wonderful texture. — 15 days ago
The 2016 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is extremely well defined on the nose with blacker fruit than its peers, wet limestone scents percolating through the red berry fruit, somehow sedate and effortless. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, nigh perfect acidity, a touch of fleshiness towards the finish. It is not the most ambitious Grand Cru, yet in terms of sheer pleasure, this hits the spot. Drink over the next 15 to 20 years. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2016 tasting.
