Domaine Lafarge

This 10ha domaine produces some of the finest wines in Volnay and has been farmed biodynamically since 1999. It is run by Michel Lafarge and his son Frédéric, who farm their vineyards using biodynamic principles. The Pinot Noir characteristics are show cased brilliantly at this domaine. Very little new oak is used, only around 5%, with barrels between 2 and 5 years preferred. The style is alluring, complex and harmonious and is exactly what one looks for in great Volnay

Tasting Notes

Full of energy, ripe and honeyed with a steely backbone. There is no oak ageing at all in this wine, allowing the fruit and minerality to shine.

Food Matches

Meursault is a perfect partner to subtle and fine-textured fish, grilled lobster, or king prawns in garlic butter sauce. If you are looking for a meat pairing, chicken or veal with white sauce is a great match.
