Description

Classic delicate Morey on the nose, peppery dark fruit and lightly floral. Cool, dark-red fruit, riper and sweeter on the palate, silky texture and finishes with scented freshness. A beauty with both richness and finesse. Tannins already smooth but just right for the shape of the wine. Mouth-watering finish. Comes full circle. Their new technical director Jacques Devauges says the Morey village wine ages very well, if you can resist the temptation to drink it. Julia Harding, JancisRobinson.com (17)

Domaine des Lambrays Morey-Saint-Denis comes from one of the best terroirs in Côte-d'Or. The vines are planted in calcareous clay soils with a high limestone content. They use environmentally friendly agriculture without chemical products, ploughing on horseback and harvesting manually at the optimal point of ripeness. In the winery, the full clusters used to make Domaine des Lambrays Morey-Saint-Denis macerate and undergo a long fermentation. The wine is then aged in barrels, 50% of which are new oak. It is finally bottled without refining or filtering.

Domaine des Lambrays was established in 1363 yet it was only in 1981 that this estate was finally promoted to Grand Cru. The estate was purchased in 1996 by the Freune family and since then dramatic changes have taken place, leading to an upsurge in quality. At 8.8 hectares, this is the largest Grand Cru parcel in Burgundy under one proprietor. Winemaker Thierry Brouin has been in charge since 1979. The vineyards are run on more or less organic lines, with no chemical anti-rot sprays, and ploughing of the soil by horse. In the cellar, he likes to use the majority of the stems, favours punching down over pumping over, and prefers to restrain the amount of new oak – around 50% for the grand cru. The produce of young vines is downgraded to Morey St Denis 1er cru where it joins the fruit of tiny holdings of La Riotte and Le Village. The village Morey comes from La Riotte, Clos Solon, Les Larreys and especially La Bidaude which lies just above the Clos des Lambrays.  Domaine des Lambrays produces wines which possess balance, power and finesse and which fully live up to their Grand Cru status.
