Decanter, October 2018

With 50% new wood framing the palate, this is subtle, nuanced and focussed, with polished tannins and bright acidity.

It's sleek and underlined by a graphic element that, along with the vibrant structure, drives the dense, powerful finish. Best from 2023 through 2040. 165 cases imported. — BS

On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and open-knit, with succulent acids and moderate concentration, concluding with a nicely defined finish. I expect this to flesh out a little as it bounces back from bottling.- WK

Vinous, December 2020
The 2017 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is tight and understated on the nose with touches of black fruit, scorched earth and decaying autumn leaves, certainly aromatics that adhere to former winemaker Thierry Brouin's style...   The 2017 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is tight and understated on the nose with touches of black fruit, scorched earth and decaying autumn leaves, certainly aromatics that adhere to former winemaker Thierry Brouin's style. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, gentle grip and, whilst not as complex as the 2018, it has commendable focus towards the lightly spiced finish. A rather easygoing, open-knit Clos des Lambrays, it should drink well for 15-20 years. This was Thierry Brouin’s valedictory vintage. -- Neal Martin
