Allen Meadows Burghound 91


2000 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2003, 2nd Quarter, 2003, Allen Meadows (web) 91 One of the best examples of the vintage from Volnay with its earthy fruit cut with pronounced bacon fat notes and noticeably sweet flavors from the impressive levels of sève, which seems to completely bury the structure. Long, fine and classy with complexity to burn. A great 2000. (drink 2008-2014)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 93+


2000 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 12/31/2005, Bonus Articles, John Gilman 93+ The Lafarge Clos des Chênes is unequivocally the finest 2000 Cote de Beaune red that I tasted on this most recent trip. The wine displays the focus, depth and structural integrity of a top vintage, not a rain-plagued and high yielding one. The bouquet is deep, complex and compelling, offering up a melange of red and black raspberries, chocolate, smoked duck, vinesmoke, herb tones, minerals, violets and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and classically etched, with superb focus, fine depth at the core, and a long, complex and moderately tannic finish. This would not disgrace itself in a lineup of ’99 Volnays! (drink 2007-2025)
