Burghound Issue: Issue 17

(produced from two large parcels of differing vine age - one that is approximately two-thirds of the blend and is now 45 years of age and a second, smaller group of vines that is approximately 20 years of age) Medium ruby. Aromas of wild berries, game and a subtle note of smoke lead to rich, intense, moderately fat flavors that are wonderfully well-balanced largely because of the racy, indeed bright acidity. This has tightened up considerably since it was bottled with a dusty, sweet and precise finish that is strikingly long. In short, delicious yet entirely serious and a wine that should age gracefully for two decades, perhaps longer.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 119

($100) Good medium red. Superripe, slightly liqueur-like aromas of crushed cherry, smoke, pepper and underbrush. Peppery, penetrating and youthfully tight, with a surprisingly restrained sweetness for 2002. Sharply defined, juicy flavors of raspberry, herbs and spices; conveys a distinct impression of soil character. The finish dusts the palate with white and green pepper and spices. Utterly singular wine. Brouin expressed the opinion that 2001 and 1998 here showcase terroir character, while 2002 and 1999 offer both terroir and fruit. The vines here average 45 years of age despite some recent replanting.

Jancis Robinson Author: Jancis Robinson

CS   Mid crimson. Heady, rich cocktail of aromas. Almost brazen in its appeal. Something almost mushroomy already. And a fantastic hit of ripe yet subtle red fruits on the palate. Gamey, rich, truffley flavours. Acidity hits the palate first, then marked tannins with very deep and nuanced fruit to support them. Very textured.

Wine Advocate Author: Pierre Rovani Issue: 153

The medium to full-bodied 2002 Clos des Lambrays sports a nose of freshly laid asphalt, spices, and blackberries. Rich, waxy, and firm, its character offers flavors reminiscent of blackberries, cassis, mocha, chocolate, tar, and licorice. Its firm yet ripe personality will repay patience.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Powerful, opulent and densely packed with black cherry, leather, licorice and spice, this is classy and transmits its terroir. Its rich profile is supported by firm, ripe tannins and vibrant acidity. Be patient. 1,700 cases made.

A strange bottle; not corked, not old, just fruit turned into a sour acidic aftertaste
