Lovely tangy savory fruit. Some sour cherry and lush plum with violets and gnarly underbrush. Very lucid and detailed. All that lovely freshness of 2001. Really excellent

Good medium red; not particularly saturated but with a healthy rim. Alluringly scented, wild-yet-somehow-refined aromas of musky raspberry, strawberry, rose petal, brown spices, cedar, underbrush and coffee; this smells sweet! Silky, stylish and weightless, showing lovely stemmy definition and lift to its flavors of wild red berries, mocha and dried flowers. Not a particularly dense or fleshy style but an alluring, vibrant drink that's perfect right now. In fact, in spite of its intense fruit component this wine may only thin out from here. This subtle, elegant Clos des Lambrays finishes with a firm dusting of tannins and a light touch. (13.7% alcohol; 3.59 pH; 3.5 g/l acidity) (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, April 2019)

Gorgeous. Just a beautiful wine. Elegant and layered with roses, wild red cherries and raspberry, exotic spices and just a hint of cassis. The finish is long and seductive. 🔥

A wonderful supple nose with black fruit and a lovely bright detailed zest. So good. Fresh, long and profound.

Tasted blind. Tawny color, old-looking and translucent. Wow nose! Notes of ripe cherry, sea salt, rose petals and earth. Perfect balance in the mouth. Impactful. Still chewy in the finish. Much debate on this, but all guesses are 20+ years off. Memorable wine.

Healthy dark red. Very sexy scents of plum, spices and cedar. Rich and silky but not a bit exotic--or even advanced, for that matter--with its seamless flavors of raspberry, spices and soil energized by salty minerality. Boasts terrific inner-mouth energy and tension, no doubt partly due to the stem element. Finishes saline and very long, with edge-free tannins and uncanny lift. At once seductively sweet and youthful, this wine should continue to evolve gracefully for another two decades. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)
