Domaine des Lambrays
Attending Winemaker: Thierry Brouin
The Clos des Lambrays (for which the domaine is named) is the largest of the Burgundian monopoles. Thierry Brouhin has been managing the domaine for an impressive 25 years. Three red wines are produced from vines in the Clos while their whites come from Premier Cru vineyard holdings in Puligny-Montrachet (Clos du Cailleret and Les Folatières). All are made using traditional Burgundian winemaking practices. The terroir of the Clos des Lambrays is complex - three separate micro climates are recognized within the Clos, all of whose soils contain a high amount of limestone. The largest section at the heart of the vineyard is called either the Clos des Lambray or Les Larrets. Les Bouchots is the name given to the northern portion of the Clos, while Meix Rentier occupies the small, southeastern corner. These wines are full-bodied and powerful but remain supple and elegant.
