Our July newsletter, 2016

After a mild winter, spring brought us a multitude of nuisances.

First, the vineyard suffered important frost damage at the end of April, followed by two very violent hail storms; the first touching the northern part of our vineyard on May 13th and the second hit two weeks later on the southern part of the vineyard as well as the Auxerrois vineyard.

These climatic incidents have strongly compromised our coming harvest.

Along with the summer, the sun and the warmth have finally made their comeback and we hope nature will reason with us until harvest to be able to obtain a good quality.

Beaujolais Nouveau is coming Thursday, 19th November! (29/10/15)



Beaujolais Nouveau 2015

This Beaujolais Nouveau has a garnet red colour, combining intensity and depth. The black fruit aromas are completed by liquorice and violet hints. The supple structure of this wine makes it voluptuous and elegant.



The harvest 2015 (14/10/15)

The harvest 2015 started early because of the very dry and sunny summer. The heavy rains of September enabled the grapes to get their full ripeness. Unfortunately, on the 31st August, a hailstorm badly affected a small part of the vineyard, especially the Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos parcels, which obliged us to harvest very quickly. Nevertheless, the harvest was generous and of really high quality.

The alcoholic fermentations are now over and already reveal wines of a great intensity. Let's wait for the end of the malolactic fermentations that are now beginning...


vendanges 2015




Welcome to Arthur! (23/06/15)

With the birth of Arthur last 23th of June, the Lamblin family has grown again.
Leslie and Alexandre are really happy and we wish them a lot of happiness!




News from the Chablis vineyard (29/06/15)

After a mild winter and a spring without any frost, the vine started its cycle with an ideal climate. The flower began the first week of June and enjoyed optimum conditions for its development. It ended by the 15th June.

2015 already looks like an early vintage, given the heat we're experiencing since the beginning of this summer. Let's hope that July and August will follow the same path...




Vinexpo 2015

The Lamblin family will be attending Vinexpo Bordeaux, from June 14 to June 18. We will be pleased to welcome you on our Stand E188 and let you discover our new vintages.

The harvest 2014 (21/10/14)

After a gloomy August, the hot and sunny month of September permitted to keep healthy vines but also to get a perfect maturity of the grapes. The harvest started on the 18th September, under a sunny sky.

The first analyses reveal an interesting similarity with the vintage 2006, offering a beautiful balance between sugar and acidity. The alcoholic fermentations are now over and confirm this really beautiful balance: the wines are already offering a wide range of aromas and a surprising minerality. Now we just have to wait for the end of the malolactic fermentations to confirm that 2014 will be a really great vintage.




News from the Chablis vineyard (27/06/14)

After a mild winter and particularly hot March and April, the vine is about 2 weeks ahead.

The flowering cycle started on the 10th June and the vines are healthy thanks to the heat and drought brought by an anticyclone.
2014 seems to be willing to be more generous than the two previous vintages, if there is no bad surprise during summer.

The harvest 2013 (06/12/13)

The grape picking started on Monday, 30th September, with an ideal weather.
Light rain at the end of the week quickly caused rot that we could avoid, as we had chosen to harvest from the first days.
The must offered a really good balance between sugar and acidity, and a large part of the crop didn’t need to get chaptalized. The only big problem this year remains the really small volumes harvested.
2013 will then be rare and of exceptional quality.

10th anniversary of Clément's participation in the family business! (19/11/13)

2013 marks the 10th anniversary of Clément Lamblin’s participation in the family business - a great opportunity to get to know our cellar master better, but also to learn more about his career path, his experience and his passion that has become his job for more than 10 years now…

What is your background?
I studied viticulture and oenology at the Viticultural school in Beaune, and was an intern at Domaine Billaud-Simon, where I worked for 2 years with Samuel Billaud. After getting my diploma, I joined the family business.

What do you particularly like in your job? Why did you choose the technical side?
I chose the technical side because it’s clearly what drives me the most in the wine world: working closely with this living matter that evolves and changes all the time is fascinating!

What is your “philosophy”? What are your priorities when you are making wine?
The main thing that leads my work is the vintage. Every year, you have to adapt yourself to what nature offers. My goal is to highlight the specificities of our rich “terroir” as much as possible, and my priority is to give the best possible balance to the wine, in order to let it express itself completely.

In your opinion, what words best describe the Lamblin wines?
Generosity, authenticity and pleasure.

What is your favourite wine to enjoy with your friends or family?
In red, the Morey-Saint-Denis, for its unbelievable generosity and intense delicacy: pure pleasure!
In white, the Chablis Premier Cru Mont de Milieu. I think this climate really reflects all the components of the Chablis “terroir”, whatever the vintage.

What are your greatest achievements since you arrived in the company?
My first vintage, of course, 2003; but also my Young Talents Trophies in 2005 and 2007, as the Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaumes 2005, awarded 3rd Best Chardonnay in the world. It’s a great pleasure to see my work being recognized so much.

What are your thoughts on these last 10 years spent in the family business?
Very positive, just like the beautiful working partnership I have with my father Didier…


Thank you Clément!

News from the Chablis vineyard (29/07/13)


This year, the Chablis vineyard wasn't affected by spring frosts.
The low temperatures of May and June have delayed the vegetative development of the vine. As a result, flowering was late and finished around July 10-12. However, the flower was made quickly and with an ideal weather, thanks to the heat brought by summer that has finally settled since end of June.
The healthy conditions of the vine are good and the crop should be generous, if the wheather is not too changeable.


                       

Vinexpo 2013

Like every 2 years, the Lamblin family will be attending Vinexpo Bordeaux, from June 16 to June 20. We will be pleased to welcome you on our Stand A221 and let you discover our new vintages.

The harvest 2012 (07/12/12)

It began on September 24th (quite usual dates in Chablis) with an ideal weather.
The wines are really well balanced and the vintage 2012 already looks promising in spite of the low quantity.

The alcoholic fermentations occured in good conditions. The malolactic fermentations are evolving in a good way and should be ended by the end of the year.

News from the Chablis vineyard (29/06/12)

After a frost period we went through without damage and a mild spring, the flower opened progressively since June 12: it lasted about 2 weeks, depending on the parcels.
This year, the vine evolves normally, compared with the previous years where the vine cycle was early.

Now, we are waiting for the sun and the harvest, expected at the end of September, to discover what the vintage 2012 has in store for Chablis lovers...



An exceptional tasting (20/06/12)

 For Tasted Journal, two of the Best Sommeliers of the World, Markus del Monego (Germany) and Andreas Larsson (Sweden) tasted blind Burgundy wines, including our Chablis 2010 and Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaumes 2010. You will find their comments in the heading Latest Highlights


Focus on the new vintage 2010 (31/01/2011)

After experiencing a long and cold winter, the vine cycle was delayed by a cool, wet spring. Flowering, also delayed, was observed in late June. The freshness of some of the summer periods led to increased coulure (absence of transformation from flower to fruit) and millerandage (smaller than normal grape berries) in spite of a good concentration. Maturation was reached on September 23rd when we began our harvest.  The harvest was healthy with excellent sugar levels in the grapes giving good alcoholic strength with balanced acidity (worthy of the 2002 Vintage).  Within the last few days, natural fermentation has completed and we have started the maturation on fine lees. We are proud to announce a beautiful, well-structured, classical and elegant vintage. The aromas are plentiful in citrus and exotic fruits. The minerality is refined with a very promising structure. Our first cuvées will be available some time in March.


Happy New Year (03/01/2011)

The Lamblin family and its team wish you all the best for the New Year and send you a wonderful bouquet of aromas, flavours and happiness...

Meilleurs Voeux


Jingle Bells (2010/12/15)

2009 vintage (31/04/2010)

After a year marked by a cold and snowy winter; spring weather proved unstable and the flowering ended mid June. The summer was characterised by warm days and fresh nights, with a good alternating rainy and dry periods. The sunny month of August allowed optimal maturation of the grapes and Northerly September wind allowed for harvest in excellent conditions.  On the morning of Tuesday 15 the harvest started. Yields were decent, with beautiful natural degrees (between 12.2 ° and 13.3 °) and a slightly lower acidity than in 2007 and 2008 but greater than in 2006. After fermentations, we decided to extend the maturation on fine lees to ensure finesse and complexity. It’s looking like it will be similar to the exceptional vintage of 2005, the 2009 is revealing its delicacy.

 
Le Chablis en appétît !
 

The Lamblin signature (16/02/2009)

2009 has so far been marked by the launch of our new bottle labels and by 12 bottle cases specially displaying our logo with a subtle blend of elegance, tradition and modernity.

Habillage

The vintage of dreams, the 2008 vintage is already expressing (with some finesse) the elegant and instantly recognisable Chablis minerality. Ensuring the best possible results, maturation on fine lees for a few months will further refine the aromas and enrich the complexity of this great vintage. The 2008 will be shown at Vinexpo – you will need to be patient !

 

Autumn fermentations (13.11.2008)

As the vine completes its cycle showing its magnificent autumn colours, in the fermenting cellar, we are preparing to welcome in a great vintage.  At the end of October, the sugars were completely transformed into alcohol. The natural alcohol level is at around 12.5° for the Petits Chablis and Chablis, and 13° for the Premiers and Grand Crus.

vinification

For a few days, malolactic fermentation has been getting underway. Clément Lamblin (12th generation Lamblin viticulturer) carefully monitors daily the progress of this delicate and crucial period in Chablis vinification. But already, this new wine is beginning to offer suppleness and roundness.
