Perhaps the finest vintage of the new millennium, the 2020 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru currently shows extremely well. Taking the first nose is almost like walking into a garden with a wide array of flowers, followed by precise aromas of predominately red fruits, orange rind, sweet spices and wood smoke. This is a full-bodied, hauntingly elegant, majestic Clos des Lambrays with ultra fine-grained tannins and a long, lingering finish. Drink from 2028 until 2050. — 11 days ago
Concentrated raspberry and red plum aromas with glints and hints of red currant, cranberry and ripe red cherry. Tarragon strong with allspice afters. Very juicy center of this tootsie pop exhibits a slightly less sweet cherry, a touch of black pepper, cedar and cinnamon framing dense plum and both dried and ripe raspberry, subdued blackberry and a racy finish of cola and roobios pumping the brakes repeatedly on this well engineered rocket.

Medium Ruby with aromas of berry fruit, tea and floral spice. On the palate flavors of cherry and strawberry, tangy, with tea, cola and cedar notes adding earthy tones. Lively acidity, soft fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with mineral and cedar spice. Drink now & over next 5 years. I like Pinots young with vibrant aromas and flavors. — 21 days ago
