“An unqualified success”



Professional reviews:

Burghound: “1998 Clos des Lambrays: (from yields of only 28 hl/ha). Exquisite fruit that, in contrast to certain recent vintages here, positively shouts grand cru caliber fruit. The flavor profile is one of a certain classy middleweight fighter’s grace and athleticism rather than a heavyweight’s power. There is plenty of ripe, mouth coating tannins lurking beneath the pinot baby fat. Much like the ‘99 in that it’s not especially big and certainly not highly extracted but it is very persistent on the finish with elegance and class to burn. An unqualified success.” 92/100 pts

International Wine Cellar (Stephan Tanzer): “Good bright red-ruby color. Knockout nose combines cherry, raspberry, redcurrant, underbrush, licorice, flowers and earth. Penetrating and quite fine; offers a three-dimensional texture but is not really showing its underlying fat today. Intriguing note of cinnamon in the mouth. Finishes very long and complex, with dusty tannins and compelling sweetness. This should be superb with eight to ten years of bottle aging.” 92/100 pts
