clos des lambrays 2000

Update 6.5.2009(7.5.2009)billn

clos des lambraysWell I was on a decent run, so why not another 2000? I’d put this behind both the Vougeraie Clos de Vougeot and the Clavelier Brulées, but it’s still a very nice wine:
2000 Clos des Lambraystry to find this wine...
Medium ruby-red colour – looks great in the glass. The nose has a little more truffle than the Clavelier, some brown sugar and higher tones – pretty, but less pretty than the Brulées. In the mouth it’s nicely sweet, reasonably concentrated and provides a lingering sweet, mouth-watering finish that has more than one dimension. There’s still a little bitter oak in the finish but it’s only a minor distraction today. It needs at least another 2 or 3 years to reach its apogee, but it’s still a very tasty bottle.
Rebuy – Yes
