In the words of Michel Bettane, the Clos des Lambrays is an extraordinary terroir, capable of giving wines that, in generosity of savour and length rival the greatest. It is, as wine maker Thierry Brouin pointed out to me and shows on the palate, the most “Morey” of all the Grand Crus of that appellation - the terroir really comes through.  As Thierry also maintains, it is one of the five greatest terroirs of the Cote de Nuits.  In the vinification too, Thierry captures this - a long fermentation, whole-cluster fermentations and 50% new allier oak. The wines are unfined and unfiltered.
