Allen Meadows Burghound 94


2005 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2008, 2nd Quarter, 2008, Allen Meadows (web) 94 A beautifully elegant and highly complex nose of extract of dark berry fruit that is both elegant and complex serves as a dramatic introduction to the big-bodied, indeed even robust flavors that are firm, dense and incredibly concentrated, all wrapped in a palate drenching finish that just oozes dry extract and gives a velvety texture to the unbelievably long finale. This is a wonderfully gifted wine that has everything it needs to age gracefully for multiple decades and it will need 12 to 15 years in a cool cellar to really hit its stride. This too is one of those 'wow' wines. (drink starting 2017)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 94


2005 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 11/1/2006, Nov/Dec 2006, John Gilman 94 As is most often the case in the Lafarges’ cellars, the Clos des Chênes is the best wine in the lineup in 2005, though this year only be a very small margin. The bouquet is deep and celestial, as it offers up notes of red berries, plums, black cherries, blood orange, cocoa, lovely terroir, and just a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and focused, with a more reticent palate impression than the Caillerets or Clos du Château des Ducs, but with great reserves for down the road. The finish is very, very long, laser-like and tangy, with fine-grained tannins and superb grip and nascent complexity. A tour de force bottle of Volnay (drink 2015-2040)
