Lower yields both by Nature and intentionally. Organic vines were converted to biodynamics in April 2020, which reduced yields further. 80% whole bunch, 60% new oak. Cask sample. Silky texture on the nose. Quite lifted with that hint of cassis that is evident in many 2019s. Manages to exhibit both structure and finesse. Restrained and subtle.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2042

The 2019 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is showing very well in bottle, wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, strawberries and plums mingled with scents of orange rind, rose petals and sweet spices. Full-bodied, ample and satiny, it’s a sensual, caressing wine with a fleshy core of fruit, polished tannins and lively balancing acids. This will offer a broad drinking window.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2060
