2011 Bourgogne Passetoutgrains L'Exception, Domaine Michel Lafarge

2011 Bourgogne Passetoutgrains L'Exception, Domaine Michel Lafarge

Ref: LAFA110
Red  |  Still  |  13% ABV

The wines at this great Volnay estate are now made by Frédéric Lafarge, Michel's son. The domaine works around 10 hectares of vines biodynamically and produces among the finest wines in the Côte de Beaune. The cellars here are low-ceilinged, cobwebbed and there's very little evidence of new barrels (very few are employed). Yet the wines emanating from the old wood casks are as beautiful an expression of their individual grape varieties and terroirs as one could hope to encounter.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

There's a hint of something slightly animal about the nose and then the palate impresses with piquant, fresh tannin. There's some peppery spice to the black and blue juicy fruit. The finish here is just fabulous. Again, this fights so far above its weight it's not funny. 

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
