Burghound Author: Allen Meadows

I was quite surprised to find just how open for business this was in magnum format as I expected something far more reserved but such was not the case. A beautiful and highly expressive nose of ripe black cherry, earth and the hallmark red pinot fruit is followed by medium weight yet concentrated flavors of bacon, smoke and sappy pinot extract that are given lift and verve by the intense minerality and outstanding length. This has added a good deal of weight and seems more powerful than before yet it remains very stylish and classy with excellent potential though like the same wine in 750 ml (see herein), this is so well balanced and harmonious that it could easily be drunk now with pleasure. That said, unless you are lucky enough to have this in quantity, I would counsel cellaring it for another 5 to 10 years. In a word, terrific.

($83) Good full deep red. Complex aromas of wild red fruits, underbrush and minerals, complicated by hints of earth, herbs and game. Sweeter and riper than the village and premier cru bottlings, with much more buffering volume to support its fairly sizable tannic structure. Still, the tannins are slightly dusty.

Smudgey, pruney, enveloping bouquet with quite a bit of development. Lots of freshness – tingly, exciting, even racy with luscious fruit. Already drinking well. (JR)

Wine Advocate Author: Pierre Rovani Issue: 136

The dark ruby-colored 1999 Clos Des Lambrays exhibits blackberry, cassis, blood orange, and spice aromas. It is medium-bodied, with a well-made candle wax, blackberry, cassis, and hoisin sauce-flavored personality. This spicy, extroverted wine is velvety-textured and appealing. Grand crus of the Cote de Nuits were entitled to 46 hectoliters per hectare yields (including the PLC) and the Domaine des Lambrays produced 45.5 hectoliters per hectare. My impression is that they would have achieved a more concentrated, deeper, and longer finishing wine if their yields had been more moderate. Drink this wine over the course of the next 10-12 years.
