The domain has moreover the quasi-monopoly of the production of this appellation. Alongside this exceptional wine, the Domaine des Lambrays produces high quality Premier Crus in Morey-Saint-Denis and Puligny-Montrachet. As a sign of its global aura, the estate has been owned by the LVMH group since 2014.

Geographical location of the Domaine des Lambrays

The Domaine des Lambrays is located in Morey-Saint-Senis, between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. This village of the côte de Nuits is an emblematic stage of the road of the Grands Crus of Brougogne.

The Domaine des Lambrays owns almost all the parcels of Clos-des-Lambrays. The domain takes its name from this climate. The 202 vineyards of this grand cru, 8.66 hectares, are exposed to the east. The soil, marly in the heights, becomes clay-limestone in descending. In addition to its vines of Morey-Saint-Denis, the Domaine des Lambrays owns some parcels of chardonnay in Puligny-Montrachet.

The wines of the Domaine des Lambrays

The red wines of the Domaine des Lambrays are all made from pinot noir. The Clos-des-Lambrays grand cru represents most of the production. Classified as a Grand Cru in 1981, this red wine is the most recent of the 33 Grand Crus of Burgundy. It is a long-keeping wine, with a very rich aroma. It is aged for 18 months in oak barrels, half of which are renewed for each vintage.

The domain also produces an excellent Morey-Saint-Denis premier cru. This one combines the grapes of different climates of Morey-Saint-Denis premier cru. Depending on the vintage, bunches from Clos-des-Lambrays that do not reach the quality expected for a grand cru are added to them. The Morey-Saint-Denis villages of the domain comes from parcels located above Clos-des-Lambrays. More exposed, these vines are more sensitive to climatic hazards. In white wine, the domain produces two Puligny-Montrachet premiers crus.
