2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
New!
96 points Decanter: "The shallow, bony soils of Les Caillerets generally produce one of the finest wines chez Lafarge and that's certainly the case here. It's a special site of 60-year-old vines covering 0.3ha of prime Premier Cru, resulting in a wine that is chalky, focused and very refined but with some ferrous grip. The oak is beautifully done here, the fruit fine, nuanced and sweet. Drinking Window 2025 - 2038. (TA)" (10/2019) 93-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Destemmed entirely by hand this year, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets o...

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: "Once again there an elevated level of ripeness to the still fresh nose of cassis, black cherry and poached plum. The slightly more elegant and more concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine richness; indeed the texture is quite seductive, all wrapped in a complex, long and balanced finale where a hint of bitter pit fruit arises. *Outstanding*" (04/2020) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles is the most immediate and seductive wine in the cellar, burs...

93-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Very ripe aromas of cassis, black berry liqueur, violet and anise precede the equally broad-shouldered flavors that also coat the palate with dry extract on the powerful, hugely long and very serious finish that is shaped by a markedly firm tannic spine. This is a buy and forget you own it wine as I would suggest not touching a bottle for at least 10 years. With that said, this is most impressive. *Don't Miss, Outstanding!*" (04/2021) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mingling notes of plums and cassi...

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. *Burghound Outstanding!*" (04/2020) 93 points Decanter: "A lovely red and b...

89-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "The expressive and elegant nose is spicier if not quite as ripe with its mix of both red and dark currants along with a pretty floral top note. The racy, intense and strikingly detailed middle weight flavors exude evident minerality on the raspy and slightly warm but impressively long finale. This will need to add more depth though my projected range assumes that will occur." (04/2020) K&L Notes: 90-93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "The first sample, served blind in the pairing of Clos des 60 Ouvrées. Fracti...
Price: $109.99

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. *Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!*" (04/2020) K&L Notes: 92-95pts Ja...
Price: $119.99

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A background note of menthol sits atop the spicy combination of floral and the pure essence of dark pinot fruit. The highly energetic and equally pure middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the beautifully refined, saline and even firmer finish that also exhibits a trace of youthful austerity. This well-balanced effort is really quite lovely and very Frémiets in character. *Outstanding*" (04/2018) 91-93 points Vinous: "Bright medium ruby. Brooding aromas of black cherry, blueberry and violet. Dense, sappy...

93-95 points Vinous: "The 2018 Volnay Les Champans 1er Cru has an outgoing bouquet similar to the Taillepieds, albeit one with more intellectual weight and gravitas behind it. Black cherries, blueberry and light cassis aromas reveal crushed stone and undergrowth notes, all delivered with intensity and superb delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly firmer, stockier tannins than the Taillepieds, darker fruit and grainier texture toward the persistent finish. I see this has having real long-term potential. Excellent. (NM)" (10/2019) 92-94 p...

93 points Decanter: "All of the parcels that supply fruit for this top-end village wine are over 55 years' old and are located in four terroirs below Volnay's Premiers Crus. Exhibiting some nobel reduction, savoury tannins and the layered. Refreshing red fruit sweetness that's the hallmark of Frédéric Lafarge's wines this has floral top notes and an elegant, refreshing finish. Drinking Window 2023 - 2030. (TA)" (10/2019) 92 points John Gilman: "The 2018 Volnay “Vendanges Selectionées” from Frédéric Lafarge is also excellent, with more depth and sappine...

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Fremiet unwinds in the glass with an incipiently complex bouquet mingling raspberries and blood orange with savory bass notes of woo smoke, loamy soil, espresso roast and raw cocoa. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated and lively, with a deep and tight-knit core, bright acids and a long finish. (WK) " (01/2020) 91-93 points Vinous: "The 2018 Volnay Fremiet 1er Cru, which underwent replanting up until 1999, has an appealing bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry prese...

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Spicy, cool and perfumed aromas include those of ripe red and dark raspberry, violet and lavender. The sleek, refined and highly energetic flavors exude a subtle minerality on the balanced and solidly persistent finish. This is very Volnay in character and worth checking out. *Outstanding!*" (04/2021) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rossignol's 2019 Volnay Village derives from five parcels: four situated just below the premiers crus and one high on the slope. Wafting from the glass with scents of wi...

90-92 points Vinous: "The 2018 Volnay Village comes from several parcels. It has a very pure bouquet of wild strawberry, cranberry and light crushed stone aromas, all delivered with fine delineation. The palate is very well balanced with chalky tannins that frame the open-knit, pure red cherry and strawberry fruit, leading to an elegant, persistent finish. Joyful. (NM)" (01/2020) 89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is also wonderfully fresh and bright with its nicely elegant red cherry, currant, spice and softly earth-inflected aromas. Once a...

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is the first wine to exhibit any appreciable wood influence and even here it is a background element on the markedly ripe aromas of cassis plum liqueur and exotic tea-scented nose. The strikingly refined middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the rich but lilting finale where the only reproach is a subtle touch of warmth. Lovely stuff though make no mistake, it should amply reward extended cellaring. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*" (04/2020) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromas of red berri...

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Perfumed, airy and more high-toned aromas derive more from the red side of the fruit spectrum while displaying pretty touch of spice and exotic tea. The cool and gorgeously textured medium-bodied flavors also brim with minerality on the focused, powerful and particularly firm finale that goes on and on. This is wonderful and I very much like the style and sheer class of this built-to-age Taillepieds. *Outstanding, Don't Miss!*" (04/2020) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More muscular than the more et...
Price: $229.99

92-95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "An herbal tea top note can be found on the ripe aromas of cassis, black cherry, cinnamon and violet. The caressing and enveloping medium-bodied flavors also possess outstanding volume and focused power on the superbly long finish. This broad-shouldered effort is presently tautly muscular and quite firm though Roncerets typically ages beautifully into classic examples of Volnay and I predict this will do the same if allowed sufficient time. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding!*" (04/2021) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine A...

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "A cool, pure and extremely pretty nose freely offers up its array of violet, rose petal, spice and mix of red cherry and dark raspberry scents. The refined and equally pure middle weight flavors possess a delicate, even lacy, mouthfeel along with a subtle minerality. This is textbook Mitans. *Outstanding!*" (04/2021) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From a clay-rich site at the bottom of the climat, Rossignol's 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Mitans—only the second rendition of this new cuvée—mingles aromas of p...

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Once again there is a markedly spicy character to the nose of plum, various dark berries and poached plum scents. The dense, sappy and less overtly mineral-driven flavors possess outstanding depth and persistence on the balanced finale. This is also going to require at least a few years of patience to be approachable though it should be fully capable of rewarding 12 to 15 years of keeping. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding!*" (04/2021) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Chevret is lovely...
