Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

94 BH / 94 WA

Note: from 40+ year old vines planted in shallow, high clay content soil sitting on a bed of solid rock; from yields of 11 hl/ha in 2016
Tasting note: An overtly floral nose combines notes of rose petal, violet and lavender with those of spiced plum, red currant and a whiff of earth. Lafon's Santenots is typically a fairly muscular wine but in 2016 it is more a wine of refinement and finesse though I stress that there is excellent concentration and punch on the impeccably well-balanced finish that flashes just a hint of austerity. Despite the refinement, make no mistake that this is a firmly structured wine that should be capable of aging effortlessly for years to come. Sweet Spot – Outstanding – Allen Meadows – Burghound

Aromas of dark cherries, incense, baking chocolate and rich soil tones introduce the 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots-du-Milieu, a medium to full-bodied wine with superb depth and dimension, juicy balancing acids and powdery structuring tannins. The finish is long and sapid. It's an excellent Santenots that has really fleshed out since I tasted it from barrel. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate
