Allen Meadows Burghound 89


2005 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay) Burghound, 4/1/2007, 2nd Quarter, 2007, Allen Meadows (web) 89 A distinctly more elegant nose that blends attractive aromas of red and black pinot fruit with violet and subtle spice notes that merge into rich, sweet and beautifully precise flavors that are chiseled, refined and pure if not as deep as those of the Duresses. (drink starting 2011)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 88


2005 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay) View From the Cellar, 11/1/2006, Nov/Dec 2006, John Gilman 88 The Volnay AC bottling chez Lafon is all made up of younger vines from the three premier crus, and will offer excellent value in this vintage. The nose is a blend of black cherries, cassis dark chocolate, fresh herbs and a topnote of woodsmoke. On the palate the wine is medium-full, pure, focused and chocolaty, with lovely focus and length, sound acids, and good length on the ripely tannic finish. There is not quite the same vivid freshness here as in the Monthelie, but this is still a lovely bottle. (drink 2010-2025)
