Allen Meadows Burghound 89-91


2004 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2006, 2nd Quarter, 2006, Allen Meadows (web) 89-91 Higher-toned and finer aromas of layered red fruits that are actually slightly less complex complement perfectly the sweet, delicious and impeccably balanced middle weight flavors that possess a quite similar tannic structure, which is to say firm but refined, all wrapped in a long and persistent finish. This is a wine of understatement and finesse. (drink starting 2011)

 


John Gilman View from the Cellar 91


2004 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 3/1/2009, Mar/Apr 2009, John Gilman 91 I did not taste the ’04 Clos du Château des Ducs in Volnay, but at a vertical tasting here in New York organized by Ray DeAngelo, a subscriber and passionate Burgundy lover, and which I look forward to reporting on in depth in an upcoming issue of the newsletter. The wine is still fairly peppery on both the nose and palate (this is particularly evident in a vertical tasting where the ’04 is surrounded by wines from vintages such as 2005, 2002 and 1999), but also offers up beautiful transparency down to the soil, impeccable balance and noteworthy complexity. The bouquet is a fine mélange of cherries, incipient notes of wild strawberry, coffee, vinesmoke, herb tones, a lovely base of soil and white pepper. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and tangy, with a superb expression of terroir, fine-grained tannins, lovely acidity and a long, focused and classy finish that closes with fine grip. This is a very classy bottle of 2004 that will be a superb drink with another five or six years of bottle age. (drink 2014-2040)
