There is a high level of soil and sub-soil diversity in the Clos, with a mosaic of orientations and a 60-metre difference in height from top to bottom of the slope. Eleven individual vinifications in newly-acquired, small vats, now take place, so that the differences may be fully understood, and the Grand Vin carefully assembled. Over 80% whole bunches were retained, and this has been ageing in 60% new oak barrels. The wine is ruby-purple of medium depth, showing ripe, freshly complex aromas of great beauty. Palate is broadly built, with luscious fruit density, gently rounded tannins, and mouth-coating, superb length. This is a great Clos des Lambrays with the potential for smoothness, outstanding elegance and magnificent complexity (for drinking 2025-2040+).
