Clos des Lambrays on kindlasti Burgundia üks parimaid grand cru'sid, olleks üks neljast Morey-Saint-Denis appellatsioonis asuvast grand cru aiast. Teised on Clos de Tart, Clos Saint Denis ning Clos de la Roche. Clos des Lambrays ajalugu ulatub tagasi juba 14. sajandisse, kuid 1981. aastal omistati sellel aiale grand cru staatus.

Domaine des Lambrays omab 8.66 ha Clos des Lambray'st ning 0.18 ha kuulub ühele teisele tootjale, seega on tegemist praktiliselt monopole veiniaiaga. 2014 aastal ostis veinimõisa LVMH. 

Clos des Lambrays asub 250m kõrgusel merepinnast ning pinnase kohta saab täpsemaltt lugedas siit. Veinipuude keskmine vanus on 50+ aastat ja keskmine saagikus on 31 hl/ha kohta. Clos des Lambrays aastane toodang on umbes 30,000 pudelit.

Viinamarjad pressitakse täiskobaratena ning kääritatakse suurtes avatud terasmahutites 15-18 päeva. Vein laagerdub 18 kuud tammes, millest 50% on igal aastal uued vaadid. Vein on suurepärase tasakaaluga, jõuline kuid samas elegantne ja siidine, mineraalse ja väga puhta pika järelmaitsega.

"The 2015 Clos des Lambrays includes ninety-five percent whole clusters this year and is a stunning wine in the making. The bouquet is deep, pure and very expressive out of the blocks, soaring from the glass in a blaze of black plums, sweet cassis, espresso, woodsmoke, gamebird, raw cocoa, a great base of dark soil tones and a nice framing of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with laser-like focus, great balance and grip and a very long, fine-grained and vibrant finish. This will take at least a decade to blossom, but it will be a great wine in the fullness of time." John Gilman 96 points

"Once again the nose is quite ripe yet very fresh with its layered array of spicy and markedly floral-inflected black cherry and plum scents. There is impressive size, weight and power to the more mineral-driven and refined medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by a distinctly firm tannic spine on the wonderfully persistent and mildly austere finale." Allen Meadows Burghound 92-95 points


"The 2015 Clos de Lambrays Grand Cru contains 95% whole cluster fruit, part of the crop with thicker skins deprived of their stems according to winemaker Thierry Brouin. It is being aged in 50% new oak. It has dusky black fruit on the nose, earthier than I was expecting given the growing season, the stem addition lending a subtle undergrowth and moss-like scent. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin and offers succinctly judged acidity. It is certainly harmonious in the mouth with a generous dash of black pepper on the finish, a pleasant prickle in the mouth after the wine has departed. Whilst not the purring engine that is Clos de Tart since it is more rough-hewn perhaps, this Clos des Lambrays has a charm of its own." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93-95 points

"Healthy dark red. Subdued but complex, sexy scents of raspberry, mocha, brown spices and earth: a real essence of this distinctive grand cru. Sappy and wild, conveying terrific intensity and precision to its red berry and spice flavors. Tactile, savory, dense and very long, finishing with lovely energy and peppery lift and a lingering element of salty minerality. Beautifully integrated ripe tannins suggest that this will be an outstanding and long-lived vintage for Clos des Lambrays. The pH here is 3.6, which Brouin described as normal. Brouin added that potential alcohol levels following the sorting were around 12.5% in 2015, and that the finished wines will be between 13% and 13.2%" Antonio Galloni Vinous 93-95 p
