Domaine des Lambrays

Well it’s all change at Domaine des Lambrays. Following the sale of the estate to LVMH for what is now looking to be a bargain price since the recent purchase of neighbouring Clos de Tart for more than double the money, long time régisseur and general all round charmer, Thierry Brouin is sadly on the cusp of retirement, with Boris Champy having arrived as his replacement. It is certainly the end of an era, Thierry having overseen the resurgence of the domaine since he joined in 1979. The estate is all about the virtual monopole Clos of the same name which climbs up the slope from the heart of the village and gazes down majestically on the pretty houses below. It is slightly bigger than Clos de Tart at almost nine hectares and comprises a mix of little combes, soil changes and subtle variations in exposure. Sometimes some is declassified into the 1er Cru les Loups, which also includes some juice from the 1ers Crus Riotte and Le Village. There is a also a little village wine and a couple of 1er Cru Pulignys. When we can we buy their impressive summer tipple Rosé du Clos, which does exactly what is says on the tin.
