"Baby Volnay". Pretty red fruits and florals on the nose. Very bright with charming red cherries. Totally in the house style and totally enjoyable at this level. 88-89
Red
2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay
Nice red and black cherry with pronounced florals. Very good concentration, intensity and depth for the village. Again the texture and presence are perfectly in the house style. Classic. 89-90
Red
2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Sélectionnées France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay
From four lieu-dit vineyard below 1er. 10% new oak. A step up aromatically with more fullness and depth. Similar step up on the palate. Near 1er concentration and persistence. 91+
Red
2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru
More dense here with lots of dark black cherry. Great richness and depth on the palate. Fleshy red and black cherry. Lots of brightness and spice in the finish. 91-92
Red
2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru
Nose is full of florals and pure red cherry. Rich and round red fruit. Lively and energetic. This is elegant now and should drink young while also holding. 92+
Red
2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru
Fuller nose and more on the black fruit spectrum with spice and some musk. Great depth and concentration here. Plush while showing great precision. Very bright at fresh despite the richness of fruit. This has it all. 93-94+
Red
2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru
Less forthcoming aromatically with dense red fruits. The palate is just chockfull of fruit and structure. A real step up in terms of stuffing but the elegance and refinement is still there. Will need 15+ years to show its best. Excellent 95+
Red
2010 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru
From bottle at Domaine. Wow, an incredible layered nose of smoky red cherry, dried herbs and florals. The palate is young but absolutely singing with everything in precise, perfect proportion. Terrific complexity and layering. Long. 95-96
