DESCRIPTION

Allen Meadows' Burghound, January 2011
An intensely floral and spicy nose that is wonderfully elegant and admirably pure speaks of red currant, blue berry, game, smoke and warm earth. The silky-textured, precise and mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors possess copious extract that does a fine job of buffering the very firm tannins and allowing for perfect balance on the mouth coating and impressively persistent finish. A classic Clos des Lambrays that should be approachable within a decade yet last for 25 to 40 years. 92-95 points.

John Gilman's View from the Cellar; Nov/Dec 2010
The 2009 Clos des Lambrays is a brilliant example of the vintage and is destined to be one of the reference point grand crus of the vintage. The nose is deep, pure and beautifully complex, as it offers up “cool” and reserved blend of cassis, dark berries, coffee bean, a great base of soil, incipient notes of sous bois and black truffles, a discreet framing of new wood and a nice topnote of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and again, beautifully reserved on the attack, with a fine core of fruit, ripe tannins, tangy acids and superb length and grip. Give this beautiful wine eight to ten years in the cellar and then stand back and watch the fireworks from the glass! A brilliant Clos des Lambrays.   94+ Points.
