International Wine Cellars (IWC) Review
Good bright, dark red. Highly complex nose melds roasted red berries, licorice, smoked meat, underbrush, baking spices, fresh herbs and sweet oak. Lush, silky and enveloping, with a penetrating herbal and spice character and a note of gingerbread that Brouin says is atypical for this vineyard. This has more volume to support its dusty, fine tannins. Very long on the aftertaste.
Wine Advocate (WA) Review
Aged in 75% new oak, the tobacco, blackberry, leather, and tar-scented 2003 Clos des Lambrays is medium to full-bodied, dense, and chewy. Hugely tannic yet concentrated and deep, this is a brooding chocolate, plum, blackberry, spice, smoky mineral, and black raspberry-flavored wine. Uncivilized and firm, it will benefit from cellaring. -Pierre Rovani
Wine Spectactor (WS) Review
An opulent, exotic red. Packed with Asian spices, sweet blackberry and raspberry ganache notes, a swath of dense tannins and new oak for support. Vibrant, and sings now, but needs time to fulfill its potential. Great length.
