This is the fourth vintage of Clos des Lambrays made entirely by Jacques Devauges, the famous winemaker previously at Clos de Tart.

The vineyard is now completely organic and this is the third year with biodynamic farming.

There are some new wines in the range including two Morey St-Denis 1ers Crus which come from Domaine Cosson, Etienne Cosson having retired.

2022 Domaine des Lambrays

“Having written about the head-to-toe reconstruction of Domaine des Lambrays after it was sold to LVMH in 2014, I will not repeat details of the new winery; readers can refer to last year’s Burgundy report. Jacques Devauges was appointed director of the Domaine and oversaw a revised approach to Clos des Lambrays. This included dividing the clos into separate cuvées to be vinified separately and incrementally expanding holdings, albeit relatively tiny in nature (see below).

“I was ready to start earlier according to the flowering date,” Devauges tells me down in the expanded L-shaped barrel cellar that’s come in useful with the extra cuvées and plenitudes of the last two harvests. “But due to drought, the maturity was not as fast as expected, so I delayed and delayed, eventually starting September 1 and finishing on September 8; the whites picked August 29 and 30. We cropped at 30hL/ha, which is the average in recent years. For your information, the 2021s will be released with the 2022s. It’s the first year officially certified organic vintage with ECOCERT, though this will not be printed on the label. It is also the first vinified in the new winery using gravity and cylindrical tanks. Plus, we have four new cuvées, although two will not be commercialized [Nuits Saint-Georges Cras and Les Murgers, which I advised Devauges to hold back and release with a bit of bottle age, lest they are guzzled in infancy]. The two new cuvées that will be released are Morey-Saint-Denis Clos Sorbet and Clos Baulet, which are sited just in front of the domaine. Domaine de Lambrays owned them until 1980, when the Cosson family sold the estate but kept those parcels. Etienne Cosson, who lives in the village, then sold these parcels back to LVMH in 2022 when he took his retirement. So, effectively, they are reunited after 41 years.”

Those two new additions in Morey are worth seeking out: propitiously located and evincing assiduous use of stems. The Clos des Lambrays itself was, in fact, tasted on two separate occasions, the first vintage to include the parcel known as “30 Rangs”. I thought it tasted better the second time during a vertical tasting going back an entire century, which will be published on Vinous in early 2024.”

One third of the vines date back to 1924. Not especially deep in colour, just a mite darker than the Beaux Monts, but thrilling on the nose. Here the whole bunch spice is just an additional factor, and does not take over. Raspberry and cherry, very little strawberry, spice behind, but a complete and complex whole. Velvet in texture, with a fine tensile strength, and gloriously persistent. Drink from 2032-2040. 95-98 Points, 5 Stars, Jasper Morris MW, InsideBurgundy.com [01/12/2023]

This new vineyard is on red soil at the top of the vineyard, along with the previously existing 0.20ha of Clos Sorbe. Jacques notes that unlike Clos Baulet, Clos Sorbe is angled a touch to the south, making it a sunnier site. 40% whole bunch vinification here too. A slightly fuller ruby colour, with more red fruit and less white pepper, in comparison with Baulet. Strawberry and raspberry, suave, svelte, a little touch of velvet while retaining the slight savoury touch of Morey. Interesting to make such different wines from neighbouring plots.

This cuvee no longer contains Clos des Lambrays young vines. The plot called 30 rangs (planted 2000) was in this wine up to 2021. La Riotte and Le Village remain, the 20 ares of Clos Sorbe has been added to new vineyards (see below) from Domaine Cosson, but instead there is fruit from half a hectare of Les Blanchards, also ex Cosson. Glowing purple. A beautifully lifted bouquet with 40% whole bunches, alpine strawberries, all in finesse. Then the wine builds to an extra level of intensity, more than expected from the elegance of the nose, The fruit shows additional nuances as well, entirely red fruit, some ripe cherries now showing as well. Just a few spices to finish. Drink from 2030-2037. 93-96 Points, 4 Stars, Jasper Morris MW, InsideBurgundy.com [01/12/2023]

The 2022 Clos des Lambrays contains 80% whole bunches (100% in the very old vines, a lower proportion elsewhere). A fine even deep ruby purple. The bouquet is backward with still a suggested intensity of fruit that can easily cope with the stems. Beautifully suave with an enveloping dark red fruit, a very graceful finish on silky, refined tannins, and we don t often say silky for Morey St Denis. They are caressing, according to Jacques. The floral touch works throughout, beautifully long and sensual. Drink from 2032-2042+ 96-98 Points, 4 Stars, Jasper Morris MW, InsideBurgundy.com [01/12/2023]

The 2022 Puligny-Montrachet Clos du Cailleret 1er Cru is pretty similar on the nose compared to its showing in barrel: more delineation than the Les Folatieres, hints of popcorn, crustacea and ginger. The palate has a pleasant bite and a keen thread of acidity, though it just needs a little more mineralite on the finish, as I opined before. [Neal Martin, 09/04/2024]

Anticipated maturity: 2025-2038
