Product Information



Allen Meadows Burghound 93

2003 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2006, 2nd Quarter, 2006, Allen Meadows (web) 93 As beautiful as both the aromatic profiles of the Caillerets and Ducs are, this is a big step up with a dazzling panoply of aromas including ripe red and black fruits, spice, underbrush, game, smoke and that lovely floral/violet component when pinot becomes perfectly ripe that leads to sweet, mouth coating, texture and powerfully structured flavors blessed with superb extract and stunningly good balance. To be sure, it's quite ripe and plumy but there is no hint of roasted, over the top quality. A knockout wine worth a special search and one that should last twenty years, perhaps longer. In short, this transcends the vintage. (drink starting 2013)

Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar 93

2003 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay Clos des Chenes Good deep red-ruby color. Black fruits, violet and pepper on the nose, with a suggestion of oak spice. Large-scaled, lush and vinous, with full but juicy flavors of dark berries and violet. This, too, boasts lovely restrained sweetness. A wine of huge phenolic material, with the dusty tannins coating the entire palate. Here's a 2003 that calls for a good decade of aging and may well evolve in bottle for 20 years or more. 93
