2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1521238 90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Volnay villages from Domaine Michel Lafarge in another lovely middleweight in the making. The vibrant bouquet is pure and already nicely complex, offering up scents of raspberries, cherries, gamebird, woodsmoke, lovely soil tones and a topnote of raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is bright, fullish and bouncy, with a good core, excellent soil signature and grip, quite subtle tannins and a very long, very pure and promising finish. Lovely AC in the making. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

89-91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is also wonderfully fresh and bright with its nicely elegant red cherry, currant, spice and softly earth-inflected aromas. Once again, the medium weight flavors possess a really lovely texture along with evident minerality on the balanced and sneaky long finish. This beautifully harmonious effort should age well over the mid-term. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2020)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Volnay Village reveals lovely aromas of dark berries, peonies and earthy forest floor. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, lively and succulent, with fine, powdery tannins and a mineral finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

The nose is discreet showing correctly ripe fruit. Totally delicious supple raspberry starts to emerge on the nose and infuse the palate. Just the right touch of acidity behind. I have fallen in love with this one at first sight!" (11/2019)
