Allen Meadows Burghound 94


2008 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 5/1/2011, May 2011, Allen Meadows (web) 94 This too serves up a remarkably layered if extremely reserved nose that displays plenty of earth and spice as well as very fresh and cool aromas of red and blue pinot, floral notes and an obvious mineral influence that continues onto the tautly muscular and overtly powerful big-bodied flavors that are long, serious and focused on the presently austere finish. It's interesting to compare the quality of the tannins between this and the Caillerets - here they are denser but less fine and as a consequence, this will need a few extra years of cellar time. (drink starting 2023)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 94+


2008 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 11/1/2009, Nov/Dec 2009, John Gilman 94+ Again, the 2008 Clos des Chênes is quite a bit more red fruity than is typical with this wine, and it will make for one of the finest vintages of this great Volnay when the dust settles on the vintage a couple of decades down the road. The stunning nose soars from the glass in a blaze of cherries, red plums, blood orange, a pungent note of violets, striking minerality and a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full and properly reserved, with a rock solid core of sappy fruit, beautiful transparency, laser-like focus and stunning length and grip on the ripely tannic and very complex finish. Great wine. (drink 2020-2060)
