laying-down2016 Volnay, Clos du Château des Ducs, 1er Cru, Domaine Michel Lafarge

Product: 2016-0750-00-1039979
  • For laying down

Description

This is the famous Lafarge monopole, right behind the house. Under the clay/gravel topsoil, there is a cushion of limestone before the bedrock. It’s a warmish site and the palate is a little rounder, the fruit a little spicier. But those are not pejorative notes, it just means the wine has a little more volume than the Mitans. Drink 2024-2035.
