ABOUT THIS WINE
Produced from what is nearly a monopole grand cru - Domaine Taupenot-Merme owns 0.004ha - Clos des Lambrays is always marked by its 90% whole bunches, but the style is very well done in 2017 under new cellarmaster, Boris Champy. With 50% new wood framing the palate, this is subtle, nuanced and focussed, with polished tannins and bright acidity. Drinking Window 2025 – 2035
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The estate also boasts a castle and its ancient cellar, dating back to the seventeenth century, and of one of the most beautiful gardens of the region. The garden features a three hundred year old cedar as well as orchids and a collection of roses. This classical beauty of the grounds contributes heavily to the wine's aesthetic qualities. At the top, the Clos is composed mainly of marls whereas the bottom clay mixes with limestone. Wine is being aged within the Domaine’s underground cellars in oak barrels, half of which being renewed every year.
There is a 60 m difference in height between the top and the bottom of the Clos. 50% new and 50% second-use barrel. 90% whole bunch (some years 100%). Will be racked to tank at the end of December. Once in cuvée it is stable so there is no hurry to bottle. Must have at least a month in tank to stabilize so they will bottle February –April. Bottling best in March or October – never too cold or hot. No filtration. They bottle with descending moon when the wine is more still.
