    March 11, 2020 - Visite au domaine Lafarge (mars 2020) (Au domaine): Un nez très parfumé, effluves de fleurs mauves, fruité. Un vin minéral et salin, élégant, franchement magnifique. 93-94 pts

    February 11, 2020 - Barrel Tasting at Domaine Lafarge (Volnay): Another step up as we get into the 1er Volnays. Concentrated red cherry is ripe and rich yet pure and bright. Lots of well contained power here. First wine where the tannins make themselves known in the firm finish. Showing more structure than my last barrel sample 9 months ago. Give this 10-15+ years. 92+

    February 11, 2020 - Burgundy, Day 1 (Beaune, France): Barrel sample. Black cherry and a relatively sweeter fruit profile on the palate. The fruit shows a little more on the black side, with a firm tannic structure on the finish. Nonetheless, relatively speaking, this is probably the easiest drinking one of the 1er crus right now.

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

    July 2, 2019 - Domaine Lafarge Cellar Visit and Tasting (Volnay): Barrel tasting at the domaine. More power vs Chenes, but more structure and less elegance or grace. This will need cellar time and will show the power and ripeness of the vintage, 91-92 point potential, also 2030 forward.
