Product Information



Allen Meadows Burghound 90

2003 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay 1er Cru Santenots-Du-Milieu (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2006, 2nd Quarter, 2006, Allen Meadows (web) 90 As I noted from cask, the aromas aren't as ripe and they're more elegant as a result with excellent complexity that introduce impeccably balanced and exceptionally concentrated flavors offering excellent intensity and impressive length, underpinned by silky tannins and that seductive velvety quality a fine Santenots can have in spades. There is still a touch of finishing warmth but overall, this is really quite a lovely effort, both absolutely and particularly for the vintage. (drink starting 2011)

Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar 92

2003 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay Santenots du Milieu Pretty bright red color. Sappy aromas of cherry, minerals, dark chocolate and flowers. Suave, concentrated and very rich, with a sappy freshness rare for 2003. This really conveys a light touch. Today this comes across as much more elegant than the Champans, with the tannins finer-grained and the finishing flavors persistent and pure. Very strong wine. 92
