The concentration and intensity of a Clos des Lambrays red wine
In the heart of Morey-Saint-Denis on the Côte de Nuits, Domaine des Lambrays owns almost the entire "Clos des Lambrays" Grand Cru, whose exceptional terroir gives rise to wines that are recognised as among the most illustrious in Burgundy.
Bewitched by the passion, skill and high standards embodied by this Burgundy estate, the luxury group LVMH acquired the property in 2014 with the mission of ensuring its sustainability, notably through high-precision plot work, organic farming certification and ongoing conversion to biodynamics, as well as the renovation of the cellars and the acquisition of new plots in 2021.
This Grand Cru is a wine from Clos des Lambrays, which belongs almost entirely to the Domaine des Lambrays, owner of 8.24 hectares. The plot, on gentle slopes, has a diversity of great exposures. The top of the Clos has a marly soil, while the bottom is of clay-limestone.
2019 is the first vintage produced under organic viticulture. Following the budburst at the beginning of April, the cool weather in May and the beginning of June led to a slowdown in the growth cycle. The start of flowering was disrupted by the cool, damp weather and the appearance of run-off partly explains the low yields of this vintage. The summer was dry and marked by two weeks of heatwave which had an impact on the size of the berries. A new heatwave brought on by the south wind at the end of August concentrated the harvest even more. With good acidity, the grapes harvested at full ripeness produced a vintage of great aromatic richness.
Winemaking and ageing
Vinification using whole grapes (80%). Alcoholic fermentation for 3 weeks, then ageing between 14 and 18 months in oak barrels, 60% of which were new.
This Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2019 from Domaine des Lambrays is 100% Pinot Noir.
