93-95 BH / 93-95 WA / 92-94 VM

Interestingly this is aromatically similar to the Caillerets except that it's not as spicy and much earthier. There is excellent size, weight and intensity to the big-bodied and equally mineral-driven flavors that evidence plenty of both muscle and power while delivering superb length on the very firmly structured and youthfully austere finale. Like the Pitures, this is textbook. Don’t Miss – Outstanding – Allen Meadows – Burghound

The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes, without doubt, has the most seductive bouquet from Domaine Lafarge: ample red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, suggestions of eucalyptus just underneath. It has wonderful delineation—crystalline. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, firm in the mouth with very good structure, a delicate sprinkling of cracked black pepper furthering the complexity on the long finish. What a cerebral Volnay and what a delicious mouthful of Volnay this is going to be. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate

(24 hectoliters per hectare): Bright medium red. Captivating perfume of cherry, raspberry, minerals and flowers. Wonderfully generous yet light on its feet, conveying terrific sappy energy and aromatic lift to its red fruit and spice flavors. Quite tactile on the back end, which features firm but sweet tannins and superb spicy persistence. This wonderfully scented wine has the structure for a long life in bottle. Stephen Tanzer – Vinous media
