With over thirty-five years of experience with this prestigious Grand Cru, Thierry has formed a bond and understanding of the terroir that is unreal. It's this same bond that has helped him to create one of the top red Burgundies of the 2015 vintage. With vines averaging over 40 years old, the now-highly experienced Thierry Brouin remains firmly in control of the vineyard and production. When speaking with Thierry, you get the sense that this man lives through his vineyard and the wine it has produced. The style remains wholly traditional, with harvest and sorting by hand, and almost no destemming. The wine itself is refined in oak, 50% of which is new, lending it a sheen of elegance, which integrates perfectly with Clos des l ambrays' touch of exoticism. ✦ iF T H e S e Wa LLS C O u L d Ta LK Walled in to protect its distinct terroir, the Clos des Lambrays is one of only five Grand Cru vineyards located around the village of Morey Saint d enis. d omaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru 2015 JG 96 » $265 "...a stunning wine in the making...deep, pure and very expressive...full- bodied and rock solid at the core, with laser-like focus...a great wine in the fullness of time."
