It has been two or three years since I last tasted the Clos des Lambrays 2006 from Domaine des Lambrays. It continues to exhibit a refined bouquet of light red cherries and strawberry, hints of undergrowth and dried autumn leaves. The palate is not as complex as either the 2009 or 2010 tasted alongside, but there is plenty of natural red, leafy fruit and a light, approachable finish that just glides across the mouth with little interest in leaving a long lasting impression. Perhaps a more ephemeral Clos des Lambrays, I would nonetheless take pleasure in opening bottles over the next ten years.

Alluring and supple, yet the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. The silky texture soon gives way to a firmly tannic structure, but the berry, spice and mineral flavors are constant from start to finish.
