Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005 (1500ml)

$749

...A deeply pitched nose of dark berry fruit, spice, warm earth, a hint of animale and an overlay of obvious minerality complements perfectly the rich, full and sweet broad-scaled yet elegant flavors that are solidly structured and firm on the detailed and wonderfully intense finish. This is a powerful, long and serious vintage of Clos des Lambrays that is built for the medium plus term, which is to say from 15 to 20 years of improvement followed by another 20 of plateau, particularly in magnum format.

The infamous 2005 vintage. A vintage that will yield terrific wines but often are still, today, closed and ungiving. This 05 Lambrays is a huge wine with serious structure. It did open up nicely after a lengthy decant. Shows intensity, richness, high acidity and a backbone of power. Ripe black and blue fruits, a bouquet of red flowers, minerals, hints of roasted herbs and sous bois. Tannins remain firm. Lots of midpalate depth and a long and concentrated finish. 05’s are for the grandchildren.

Robe foncée Nez épicé et fruit mûr plein dense rond Finale assez généreuse et solaire avec toutefois une mineralite fraîche voir froide Je l aurai plus mis en corton que sur lambeaux mais assurément un très beau vin

Black cherry & strawberry fruit, lots of mineral & spice. Rich & full bodied that is just starting to open but still needs another few years.
