90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An elegant, pure and super-fresh nose reveals notes of intensely floral-inflected black berries, plum, violet and a beautiful range of spice elements. This is arguably the most refined wine in the range texturally speaking with its punchy and well-detailed flavors that terminate in a serious and tautly muscular finish. As pretty as it is though, I would still observe that it isn't quite as refined as say the 2010, 2014 or 2017 versions. *Outstanding*" (04/2020) 93 points Decanter: "A lovely red and black fruit n...

95-97 points Vinous: "The 2018 Volnay Clos des Ducs 1er Cru, the famous 2.15-hectare monopole of the domaine, is matured in around 25% new oak, although Guillaume d’Angerville mentioned that he intends to use less new oak in the future. It has a very intense bouquet of raspberry preserve, kirsch, blood orange and sous-bois aromas, all displaying wonderful delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with fabulous density and complexity, offering brambly red fruit, blood orange, orange peel, suggestions of dark chocolate and, of course, wonderful mineral tens...

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An airy, cool and slightly more elegant nose isn't quite as spicy, but it is certainly higher-toned with its combination of red and dark currant, cherry and discreetly floral-suffused aromas. There is once again excellent energy to the strikingly well-detailed flavors that are almost as mineral-laden, all wrapped in a refreshing and youthfully austere finale. Good stuff and despite being firmly structured, this could actually be enjoyed young. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (04/2020) 93 points Decanter: "A lovely re...

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A super-floral nose seems to have every floral element in the book including a perfumed hint of gardenia that adds a touch of elegance to the exotically spicy aromas of red and black raspberry. The pure and almost painfully intense flavors are like rolling tiny stones around in the mouth while delivering outstanding depth and persistence on the overtly austere, serious and compact finale that leaves zero doubt that this beauty is built-to-age. In a word, terrific.*Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!*" (04/2020) 94...

97 points Decanter: "This superb 2.15ha monopole, located on white clay soils just behind the winery and high on the slopes above Volnay, has made one of the great wines of the vintage in 2017. It's powerful, structured and complex, with layers of red cherry, raspberry and pomegranate fruit, sinewy tannins and pools of concentration. A stylishly oaked wine that's long, mineral and satisfying. Drinking Window 2025 - 2035. (TA) " (10/2018) 94-96 points Vinous: "The 2017 Volnay Clos des Ducs 1er Cru is the famous crown jewel monopole of the domaine, ost...

93-95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Volnay Les Mitans 1er Cru has an absolutely glorious bouquet of perfumed black cherries, blueberry, potpourri and light violet aromas that are understated and yet focused and delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with a precise opening, and very harmonious and sensual. Pure, mineral-driven red fruit defines the effortless finish. Stunning. (NM)" (01/2020) 94 points Decanter: "Noble reduction is often a feature of the Lafarge reds at this stage in their development, but it's nothing to sorry about, given how they mature ...

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An admirably deft application of wood subtly frames spicy aromas of red and dark currant, violet and a suggestion of sandalwood. The lacy but intense and mineral-driven medium weight flavors conclude in a balanced, wonderfully persistent, and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is sufficiently firm to repay up to a decade of cellaring. *Burghound Outstanding!*" (04/2021) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromas of cherries, raspberries, raw cocoa, violets, rose petals and spices introduce the 2019 V...

95 points Decanter: "The domaine's holdings of Santenots are sizeable at 3.9ha, although the younger vines are used to make Dominique Lafon's village Volnay. This richer, denser, sappier wine has subtle reduction with some spice and texture from 10% whole bunches, accompanied by filigree tannins and a core of plum and dark cherry fruit. (TA)" (10/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots-du-Milieu confirms its strong showing from barrel, soaring from the glass with scents of ripe cherries, red berries, rose p...

2018 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay 1er Cru "Les Santenots du Milieu"
Back In Stock!
94 points Decanter: "Generally the biggest and boldest of Dominique Lafon's line up of Volnays, sourced from a 3.9ha vineyard in the commune of Meursault that produced 49 barrels of wine in 2018. Focused, taut and layered, it has fine, scented one-third new oak, plenty of minerality and freshness and layers of black cherry, plum and raspberry fruit topped by pepper spice. (TA)" (10/2019) 94 points John Gilman: "2018 is unequivocally a great, great year for the Lafon family’s Santenots du Milieu, and I would not be surprised to see this gorgeous young V...

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2015 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Champans" ((93-95BH), 95VN, 93RP). Vinous: "Saturated ruby. Youthfully imploded aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis and licorice show no roasted character ("the color of the wine is the only thing that gives away the vintage, " noted Guillaume d'Angerville). More pliant than the 2016 but with a magical sugar/acid equilibrium and a complicating element of savory minerality. This insidiously palate-saturating wine finishes with outstanding slatey persistence and grip. I would imagine that this will be long-lived but will it ever really shut down in the bottle? It's hard to imagine that this fruit was harvested on September 4. (ST)" (01/2018)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur Volnay 1er Cru "Taillepieds" ((91-93BH)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A backward but supremely elegant, pure and refined nose features airy and lacy red Pinot fruit and delineated, intense and almost pungently mineral middle weight plus flavors that are classy and penetrating on the laser-like finish. This is a classic Taillepieds and patience will be required for it to really open up and display its full potential. An altogether lovely wine and recommended. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $125.00

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Domaine de Montille Volnay 1er Cru "Les Taillepieds" (1.5L) ((92-94BH), (91-93RP), (90-92ST)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A restrained yet perfumed nose is the essence of wet stone and ripe Pinot, all trimmed in dried floral notes. Like the Mitans, this is also positively crystalline as the flavors seem to be composed from liquid rock and deliver positively huge length along with the hallmark finishing austerity of a young Taillepieds. A highly impressive effort of impeccable balance. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $245.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Volnay 1er Cru "Taillepieds" (92BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This too is relatively toasty and very ripe, indeed to the point of where there are notes of deep plum, mocha, black berry and subtle spice hints that lead to intensely mineral and highly complex and nuanced flavors that benefit from a distinct sense of lift and detail because of the almost pungent minerality of the firmly structured and hugely long finish. This isn't really my style but there is no doubting the underlying quality of the raw material. *Outstanding* " (04/2007)

Bid on this 2-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2005 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru "Clos de la Bousse d'Or" ((91-93BH), 92RP, 90ST) and 1-bottle of 2005 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des 60 Ouvrées" ((92-94BH), 94RP, 93ST). Of the 2005 Domaine de la Pousse d'Or Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des 60 Ouvrées", Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "The 2005 Volnay Caillerets Clos des 60 Ouvrees (like the Clos d’Audinac and Clos de la Bousse d’Or, a monopole) features the oldest vines in the estate’s Volnay holdings, more than half of them planted in the mid fifties. Black cherry, purple plum, pistachio, ginger, and cumin inform the nose. On the palate this offers old vines creaminess, flattering glycerin, and yet also a persistently bright freshness of black fruits. (DS)" (04/2007)

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 Nicolas Potel Volnay 1er Cru "Clos de Chênes" ((90-93BH), 92ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Noticeable wood spice mixes with an airy and elegant nose of ripe red and black Pinot fruit that complements beautifully the detailed and minerally medium plus bodied flavors that exude grace and class on the gorgeously long finish. This is quite firmly structured and will clearly be in need of up to a decade to reach its apogee. Impressive juice. *Outstanding*" (01/2007)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Dominique Lafon Volnay 1er Cru "Les Lurets" (92RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The most impressive of the reds I tasted is, without question, the 2010 Volnay Lurets. It has the energy of the straight Volnay, but with much more fruit, density and ripeness. Dark red berries, mint, flowers, wet stones and spices blossom on the extroverted, hugely delicious finish. The 2010 boasts serious power, depth and balance. I loved it. (AG)" (08/2012)

Bid on this bottle of 1999 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs" (96BH, 96VN, 95JG, (91-94RP)). Vinous: "Good dark red. Seriously rich, deep aromas of black cherry, currant, tobacco, chocolate and sexy soil tones, plus a whiff of leather that adds complexity. Wonderfully rich, deep, tactile Volnay with a remarkably chewy texture and outstanding dimension to its flavors of strawberry, redcurrant, mocha, tobacco and cocoa powder. The salty, monumental finish features huge, mouthcoating tannins and outstanding rising length. This very complete wine boasts uncanny depth of flavor, particularly in light of the vintage's healthy yields. By far the best bottle of this wine that I have tasted to date. (ST)" (10/2019)

Bid on this magnum of 2009 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs" (1.5L) (95BH, 95RP, 94VN, 93ST, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Volnay Clos Des Ducs is the only wine in this lineup that is playing its cards close to the vest. Weightless yet powerful, the Clos des Ducs impresses for its striking balance and poise. There is so much going on in the glass its hard to know where to start. Floral notes meld into hints of licorice, sweet red cherries and mint in this crystalline, totally gorgeous Volnay. Today the tannins are impossibly firm, so readers will have to be patient.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Henri Boillot Volnay 1er Cru "Les Frémiets" (93BH, 91ST). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This too is quite ripe yet slightly fresher with airy and high-toned red Pinot fruit that gives way to detailed and intensely mineral-infused flavors that retain a lovely sense of purity and refinement on the balanced, long and penetrating finish. This is an exercise in harmony and transparency. In a word, terrific. *Sweet spot, Outstanding!* " (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Bel Air" (92BH). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* An airy red pinot fruit nose nuanced by a lovely mix of game, earth, iron, underbrush and a touch of the sauvage that continues onto the supple, delicious and very pinot flavors yet the finish is intensely earthy and serious. In sum, this is an attractive mix of beautiful fruit and ample Gevrey character, particularly on the explosive finish. Terrific." (01/2008)
Starting Bid: $140.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2017 Hospices de Beaune (Coche-Dury) Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots - Cuvée Gauvin" (93JG). John Gilman: "I am not sure if Raphaël Coche is likely to buy this cuvée on a regular basis in the future, but I am very happy he purchased a lot of the 2017, as this is going to be an excellent wine. It is a bit more new oaky, and the wood is a bit more toasted than is the case with the domaine’s own red wines, but it has excellent depth and complexity on both the nose and palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of sweet blackberries, black cherries, bitter chocolate, pigeon, dark soil tones and smoky new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and shows fine purity to its soil signature, with a lovely core, fine focus and grip and a long, ripely tannic and very nicely balanced finish."

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2010 Domaine JM Boillot Volnay 1er Cru "Carelle sous la Chapelle" (92ST). Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Delicate, nuanced nose offers purple fruits, violet, spices, earth, dark chocolate and smoky minerals. Stylish and light on its feet; impressively intense yet weightless. Higher-pitched than the village wine owing to its strong acidity and pronounced floral character. The rising finish perfumes the mouth with violet florality. A great showing today, but this will benefit from five or six years in the bottle. (ST) 92+" (03/2013)
Starting Bid: $120.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Frémiets" ((91-93BH), 92JG). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is more discreet and reserved with wonderfully pure notes of red, black and blue fruits plus a lovely hint of violets that sit atop dusty, refined and gorgeously delineated flavors supported by an almost pungent minerality on the textured, long and explosive finish. This is more concentrated and structured than usual and should live for a very long time. *Outstanding*" (04/2007)
Starting Bid: $345.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Dublère Volnay 1er Cru "Les Pitures" ((90-93BH)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This too is highly perfumed and expressive with elegant red Pinot fruit aromas that possess added nuance in the form of subtle spice and violet hints. As one might reasonably expect, here the minerality is more prominent on the round, supple and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a silky finish. This is very Volnay in basic character and delivers positively terrific length. *Outstanding*" (05/2011)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Dublère Volnay 1er Cru "Taillepieds" ((91-93BH)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This offers yet another notch up in overall refinement, particularly on the equally perfumed and refined nose where the stone component is front and center on the high-toned and ultra-pure red pinot fruit and floral suffused nose. There is an equally strong mineral component to the detailed, energetic and precise flavors that possess ample mid-palate concentration that buffers the moderately austere finish. This is a classy and long effort that is perhaps a bit less Cistercian in character than usual but young Taillepieds is rarely ever open for business immediately. *Sweet spot Outstanding*" (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $136.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Frémiets" (93-95RP, 92VN, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This outstanding Fremiet contains oodles of dark cherry and boysenberry fruit on the nose with very fine definition. Tightly coiled but very focused. The palate has a pretty, quite tannic entry, very nicely poised with wonderful mineralite towards the crisp, focused vintage. Bon vin! (NM)" (03/2011)
Starting Bid: $190.00

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2009 Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots" ((91-93BH), (90-92VN)). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An extremely ripe yet not surmature nose of menthol, plus liqueur and cassis aromas lead to very rich, indeed even opulent medium-bodied flavors that exude an abundance of palate coating dry extract on the velvety, powerful and coffee-infused finish of dramatic persistence. This is not an especially elegant version of the appellation nor does it have the intense minerality of the best examples yet it is compelling in its own right." (05/2011)
Starting Bid: $150.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Nicolas Potel Volnay 1er Cru "Champans" ((90-92BH), 92ST, 91RP). Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Deep ruby. Strong reduction hides the nose but it's clear that the fruit underlying the funk is exceptionally ripe and this ripeness also characterizes the rich, supple and forward flavors that are much more refined and I like the mouth feel as there are refined tannins and plenty of the classic minerality on the persistent finish."
