Tasting Notes

This wine is produced from 6 plots totaling 2.6 ha of vines planted as far back as 1932. There is no new oak used in the production of this wine, it is a pure expression of the Pinot Noir and terroir of Volnay. A beautiful, expansive and aromatic bouquet, very much in the distinguished Lafarge style. The palate is very refined, not heavy at all, sexy and expressive with an incredible density of strawberry fruit. Pure and elegant, the tannins are silky and smooth and there is seamless structure to the wine. Long on the finish this is a beautifully crafted wine. Chapeau!
