Community Tasting Notes 3

    March 11, 2020 - Visite au domaine Lafarge (mars 2020) (Au domaine): Une terres très rouge selon Frédéric, peu de sol, la roche calcaire est près du dessus. Parcelle achetée en 2000, qui a donné une moitié de récolte, car elle fut replantée pour moitié en mars 2020.

    Un vin très minéral et fin, d'une élégance folle. C'est long et bien frais, très précis, avec un équilibre princier. 95+ pts

    February 11, 2020 - Barrel Tasting at Domaine Lafarge (Volnay): Hand de-stemmed. The mineral and stoniness is fully up front here with fruit that crosses into the blueberry spectrum. So precise and well defined on the palate. Will benefit from cellaring 10+ years. 92-93

    February 11, 2020 - Burgundy, Day 1 (Beaune, France): Barrel sample. Hand-destemmed. Tricky to evaluate given a bit of an ornery fizzy red fruit thing, but the minerality here is stunning. The outstanding feature here is the minerality, which is far more prominent than the other three 1er crus.
