    June 30, 2019 - Musique & Vin Pre-Concert Volnay Dégustation (Château du Clos de Vougeot): Tasting, brief note. Subtle spice to start with bright red cherry, then spice intensifying middle through finish. Moderate weight, good balance in an elegant style. I'd give this at least another year or three in the cellar, then enjoy through the next few decades.

    May 8, 2019 - Domaine Michel Lafarge Vertical Tasting (E&R Wine Shop, Portland OR): Much more involved nose than the 2014. Very nice depth and diversity, showing pretty earth tones, gravel, and a very pretty floral streak running through it. The palate is very very pretty on entrance, showing some lighter, more lifted fruit notes here. Nice spice from the acid and pretty fruit is integrated throughout. Lovely balace of acidity and soil spice on the finish. Very pretty, elegant, and balanced.

    October 19, 2018 - Obviously high quality and pedigreed, although a bit upright and unyielding. However, the beauty kept poking through. I was disappointed that I opened this far too early, although it was still enjoyable in an austere, lip smacking way. This should be excellent in about 8-12 years. Hold.

    March 1, 2017 - Michael Larfage's monopole vineyard Clos Du Chateau Des Ducs 2013. The second bottle of my 6-pack burgundy tasting. Compared with D'Angerville, darker ruby color, more raspberry on the nose, concentrated considerably heavier body, little hint of new oak influence, same bright acidity and firmer tannin. Will require more time to soften the tannin and develop further nuances.

    February 6, 2017 - Domaine Michel Lafarge au Club Chasse & Pêche (Club Chasse & Pêche): Un fruit rouge éclatant au nez, c'est parfumé, floral et racé. Le vin est jeune et très fin, avec un style aérien. J'aime beaucoup ces notes subtiles de petites fraises. Un volnay raffiné et charmant, déjà très agréable. 92+ pts
