Allen Meadows Burghound 95


2009 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) Burghound, 4/1/2012, April 2012, Allen Meadows (web) 95 The wondrous complexity of the aromas is genuinely remarkable with its ultra-fresh, ripe and airy red berry fruit, stone, earth and spice scents. Moreover, this impressive depth continues onto the rich, full-bodied and very serious big-bodied flavors that ooze dry extract on the concentrated, intense and vibrant finish that seems to go on and on. I very much like the balance and while this is certainly extremely rich and ripe, there is absolutely no sense of heaviness or undue weightiness. This explosive effort should be magnificent in time. (drink starting 2024)


John Gilman View from the Cellar 94+


2009 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru) View From the Cellar, 11/1/2010, Nov/Dec 2010, John Gilman 94+ The 2009 Clos des Chênes is a simply stunning young wine. The magical and still fairly primary bouquet offers up notes of red and black cherries, red plums, cocoa, woodsmoke, a touch of gamebird, fresh thyme and a beautiful base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and seamless, with a sappy core of pure fruit, suave tannins, bright acids and superb length and grip on the focused and utterly complete finish. A great vintage for the Lafarge Clos des Chênes. (drink 2020-2070)
