Community Tasting Notes 5

    February 14, 2021 - So far, this is the best Fleurie I have tasted. Ruby center, notes of red and black cherries, vanilla, flowers, medium to full body, slightly tannic, great acidity, very lengthy. Impressive but not cheap. Priced $57 CAD will hold a decade in the cellar. For $2 more a bottle, I might try their high-end Joie du Palais cuvée.

    September 17, 2020 - Well there is a ton of dark fruit on the nose. And then tart and fresh on the palate. Quite tart and fresh.

    March 11, 2020 - Visite au domaine Lafarge (mars 2020) (Au domaine): Concentré, très minéral et frais, belle finesse. Fruit croquant, frais, c'est très joli. 90-91 pts

    February 11, 2020 - Barrel Tasting at Domaine Lafarge (Volnay): From bottle. Very red fruited and floral. Good plushness of juicy fruit with spice in the bright finish. 88-90

    February 11, 2020 - Burgundy, Day 1 (Beaune, France): As far as gamay goes, some of the most serious I've tasted. None of that carbonic glou-glou bullshit, this is a no-nonsense wine with a slight hint of Sharpie marker on the nose but more importantly a brilliant streak of minerality.
