Opened this bottle to accompany roast duck breast. Had a medium intensity brick/ruby core with a slightly more brick coloured rim. On the nose very intense aroma of cherries, with touches of almonds and very slight "undergrowth" notes. The palate feel was silky, with very soft tannins, the acidity balanced beautifully the fatty duck dish we drank it with. A long intense cherry finish.
Ruby and slightly cloudy in the glass. Nose of soft, light cherry. On the palate this was smooth, a fair amount of acid with fruit of cherries, becoming darker with time in the glass. Good, but to my palate, not great. Not completely happy I spent $95 for this. Was a good complement to the salmon we had for dinner.
Surprised that a 2000 AOC would hold up with this much fruit. The elegant and classic Lafon touch is right there, with alight, fully developed Volnay sense of cherry, a hint of smoke, wild berries and a soft nice balance of acid. Had 2 bottles at a restaurant and both were very fine. Did not last with full fruit more than a half hour in the glass though. Drink up.
Not great, but it's oh so good. This shows an alluring crushed raspberry nose, bright fruit, sexy texture, and impeccable balance. This is on the light side of medium bodied and is an adolescent--just showing hints of suave maturity, but still with some unruly (but enticing) angles. This is quite simple, and to a gobs-of-fruit lover might be a little thin, but to me it's beautiful villages. High drinkability factor, and a perfect restaurant Burgundy. Drinking quite well now, this should improve for another few years. I'm sure this will give pleasure for at least another decade and probably more.
Not decanted. Appearence is deep clear red and showing just hints of bricking on the edges. First whiff is very pure crushed strawberries with no mature aromas to be found. After a while the berries turn to the darker kind (cherry?) and the wine adds a earthy note. Spices lingering in the background with roses. The palate begins disjointed but adds weight to soon show medium body, good intensity of flavour but still a little rusticity remain. Only improves with time. All in all the wine needs time in the glass to get its components together and show complexity and gives a young impression. I will keep my last bottle 5 years.
