Critic Reviews
92-94 points, Jasper Morris
“Half of this production comes from actual 1er Cru vines, made with whole bunches, and the other half comes from the young vines (2000) in the Clos, “Les 30 rangs”, and these grapes were destemmed. Mid crimson, a gorgeous bouquet showing the crushed strawberry style of stems. A slightly raw finish but still a big step up from the village Morey. Drink from 2026-2031.”

“The 2021 Morey-Saint-Denis Les Loups ler Cru contains half Premier Crus (La Riotte and Clos Sorbé) and the other half from younger vines in Clos des Lambrays planted in 2000 that is likely to enter the Grant Vin next year. Including 50% whole bunches, it has an attractive dark berry fruit and subtle briny scents on the nose. Good intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with lithe tannins, a mixture of red and black fruit with a very precise finish enhanced by the stem addition. This is a much more serious wine than the Village Cru. - By Neal Martin on November 2022”

About The Winery
Since they were first erected by Cistercian monks in 1365, the walls surrounding the Clos des Lambrays have harnessed the harmony of their 8.66 hectares of vines. This notion of the perfect union of the whole persists today and remains Clos des Lambrays' raison d'être. Over the course of the estate's 650-year history, the unity of the Clos has not always been secure. The French Revolution saw the vineyard split across 74 different owners, but its reassembly by the Rodier family in the late 1890s was a defining moment in the Domaine's past, influencing its present, and driving its philosophy, for the future, under the auspices of Groupe LVMH since 2014. In March 2019, Jacques Devauges joined the estate as the General Manager and the Chief Winemaker.

Rediscovering the essence and emotion found in the mythical bottles of Clos des Lambrays from the early 1900s, which still impress today after so many decades is the vision of the whole team, and the inspiration driving their daily efforts in the vineyard and in the cellar.
