2002 Domaine des Lambrays Clos des Lambrays - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru (3/26/2020)
From 375ml, this could have gone much longer, but it was open and showing a good balance of fruit and developed elements. Black cherry, turned earth, menthol, dried herbs, and a subtle hint of licorice were backed up by solid tannins. The fruit carried through the finish, and remained balanced. From full bottle I would definitely wait longer.

I actually have some of this so appreciate the note. I consumed a bunch of 375 ml bottles and now am on 750’s. Agree that this vintage is accessible but more glories will abound for those who wait.
We continue to have an affinity for the same producers…
Lambrays is a bit of an Avis Burgundy… has to try harder amid other darlings.
For the record, I’m a fan. Good historical QPR.
Thanks for the excellent note David. I’m sitting on a few of these, and while I am tempted, I will heed your advice and hold off for a few more years. I admit, I am envious that you have these in 375s.
