Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Selectionnees 2008

Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Selectionnees 750ml 2008     
Sku: 21115

Domaine Michel Lafarge, dating back to the early 19th century, produces some of Burgundy's most precise and penetrating wines. From their base in Volnay - a neat but unpretentious house in a quiet backstreet hiding some splendid 13th-century cellars - Michel and his son Frederic tend to and vinify the produce of just short of 10 hectares of vineyards, over half of them in Volnay. The vineyards have always been cared for in the most natural and traditional manner, with the utmost respect for their terroir. When replacement of vines is necessary, grafts of existing old vines of the Domaine are always used so that the unique "selection massale" is maintained. The entire Domaine was converted to biodynamic farming in 2000 - a natural progression of the Lafarge philosophy which aims to improve harmony between the soil, the vines and the people who cultivate them. The Lafarge wines are characterized by a finely-tuned combination of refinement and structure. Whatever the vintage, their balance and individuality is always evident.

 Wine Advocate 90 points (May 2011)
Lafarge’s 2008 Volnay Vendanges Selectionnees is sweet, rich and beautifully layered. It shows superb depth as it sweeps across the palate with generous, expressive fruit. An uneven flowering in 2008 resulted in abnormally low yields. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. ”
