    ($60) Good medium red. Fresh aromas of red fruits, spices and mint. Juicy, spicy flavors of small, wild red berries show good lift. Finishes with dusty tannins and a medicinal quality but good ripeness. This seems to be shutting down already.

    A pretty nose of airy and ripe red pinot fruit that displays a touch of earth leads to round, supple and sweet flavors that possess good vibrancy and excellent mid-palate fat on the mouth coating and pure finish. This is altogether lovely with balance, depth and while it's not overly concentrated, the harmony of expression is lovely.

    CS On the nose, coffee then savoury black toffee without the sweetness of toffee. Fresh bright fruit and quite powerful. Quite modern, possibly lacking intrigue. (JH)

  • This vineyard near Morey St Denis in the Cote de Nuits produced stellar wines in the 1940s and fully deserved Grand Cru status, yet this was not achieved until 1981. Under owners Roland de Chambure, the Saier family and oenologist Thierry Brouin, the "sleeping beauty" vineyard succeeded in making a comeback after having fallen into disrepair in the 1970s. In 1996 after being sold again, the new owners, Gunter and Ruth Freund, restored the chateau and re-established the successful path that Lambrays has since followed.

    The wines are studies in finessed concentration and exhibit an enchanting blend of fruit, spice and mineral that continues to evolve on the palate and in the cellar. In addition to the Morey St Denis reds, Lambrays also produces a few Chardonnays from Puligny Montrachet.
