Allen Meadows Burghound 93


2006 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2009, 2nd Quarter, 2009, Allen Meadows (web) 93 Here the aromas are equally ripe with an earthier and more deeply pitched aromatic profile that serves up a strikingly pretty array of red raspberry and currant, plum and violets that introduces, rich, full and more powerful flavors that possess a gorgeous mouth feel and ample mid-palate concentration that buffers the most prominent tannins on the driving, energetic and explosive finish. As it usually is, this is the best in show in 2006. (drink starting 2014)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 94


2006 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 3/1/2008, Mar/Apr 2008, John Gilman 94 The 2006 Clos des Chênes should prove to be yet another brilliant vintage for this great bottling, as the wine delivers great purity, complexity and intensity of flavor. The superb and very deep bouquet offers up notes of red and black cherries, red plums, vinesmoke, gamebirds, a fine base of soil, notes of coffee and a pungent topnote of violet. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and very transparent for the Clos des Chênes out of the blocks, with ripe, fine-grained tannins, beautiful acidity, great focus and a very long, palate-staining finish. This is not as powerfully built as the great 2005 Clos des Chênes, but in terms of ultimate quality, it may well give that fine wine a run for its money. (drink 2018-2045)
