    October 15, 2021 - Lafarge's '18s show the perfect marriage of producer to vintage. This has Lafarge's classic soulful, muscular, somewhat-angular style but with the added oomph of opulent, perfectly ripe fruit that gives this the depth, weight, and presence of a pedigreed 1er. Young but expressive and absolutely everything I look for in a Burgundy villages. Try one before it shuts down.

    March 11, 2020 - Visite au domaine Lafarge (mars 2020) (Au domaine): Sélection venant de quatre parcelles : Les Grands champs, La Gigotte, Les Pluchots et Ez Echards. Une bombe de fruit, mais c’est très frais, concentré, superbe. Un pur délice. 91+

    February 11, 2020 - Barrel Tasting at Domaine Lafarge (Volnay): Terrific, intense aromas with violets intermixed with red cherry and some black cherry fruit as well. Like the Volnay village but just more intense and concentrated. Consistent with the range this has an elegance and restraint despite the warm vintage. 91+

    February 11, 2020 - Burgundy, Day 1 (Beaune, France): Barrel sample. Again another step up from the regular Volnay in terms of power and intensity. There's more black fruit and tannin in this wine, and it's clear that this needs more time before it's ready to drink. For my taste, this is definitely punching far about the village level on the label.

    July 3, 2019 - Barrel Tasting at Domaine Lafarge (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+
