Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 33

(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) Not surprisingly, this is more elegant, more refined, more complex and more complete though perhaps less than one might have expected. A moderately ripe red berry fruit nose with earth, stone and spice undertones introduces sappy and mouth coating flavors that possess good if not special concentration and dry extract on the moderately long and slightly warm finish. In sum, 2006 is a perfectly good vintage for the Clos des Lambrays but not a truly distinguished one.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 143

($165) Good full red. Dark cherry, licorice and brown spices on the nose, plus a whiff of leather. Suave on entry, then tightly wound and deep in the middle, offering lovely lift and perfume to the highly nuanced flavors of blueberry, black cherry, brown spices, minerals and humus. Not especially sweet in the early going, but this boasts excellent mid-palate density and finishes with noteworthy generosity of texture, pungent minerality and suave, dusty tannins. Seems riper and deeper than the young 2007. I'd wait four or five years on this one.

 Notably dark crimson. Subtle, mushroomy, autumnal nose. Very sweet and juicy. Some astringency on the finish but overall decent balance. Medium weight only.

Wine Advocate Author: David Schildknecht Issue: 186

The 2006 Clos des Lambrays is darkly-shaded in aromatics to match its darker color vis-a-vis its two littler siblings. Ripe plum and blackberry, burley tobacco, resin, and tar in the nose are transported to a palate that shares the sappy intensity, cling, and invigoration ' via tart, spicy and tactile mineral impingement ' that are common to this year's Domaine des Lambrays trio. Here, hints of violet perfume and a lurking sense of gaminess add mystery. Black pepper, cardamom, berry skins, chalk, salt, and resin are featured in a tenacious finish of vibratory energy. The longer this was open to the air, the more it fascinated. I see no reason to defer the pleasures of its company now, but would expect it to be well worth following for 10-12 years. In retrospect, this seems to me the unequivocal statement of grand cru depth and complexity that I have been seeking without complete satisfaction in so many previous vintages of Clos des Lambrays.

Wine Spectator Author: Bruce Sanderson

Alluring and supple, yet the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. The silky texture soon gives way to a firmly tannic structure, but the berry, spice and mineral flavors are constant from start to finish.
