This could arguably age quite a bit longer, but not certain there is much upside once fruit dissipates.

High toned perfume, vivacious acidity, lovely elegance and fineness about it. Fruit is cool, beautifully just ripe, and lovely with its pure approach. Strawberry, cranberry, blood orange, mineral, fern forest, and light flower notes. Despite the “lightness,” this has sufficient stuffing to it. Great window into Volnay purity and Lafarge style.

Easy drinking Bourgogne with a spice laden finish. Lean texture makes this go down too easy.

Mysterious, beguiling Burgundy. This bottle played peek-a-boo with sappy texture, red/black fruit, leather and sous bois, with a constant of great acidity and lightness. I understand how many would not like it as much as I did. Excellent with chicken pot pie.

Firm darker berry fruit with a touch of earth. Youthful and gripping. Lots of power for the level.

Domaine Michel Lafarge Bourgogne 2010 and fregola. Easily needs another 3-5 years. Stoic, meditative, not for fashion chasers.

99 is holding up well! Still good red fruit, some earth, and well balanced. Finish does carry for a bit, really pleasant especially given the age.

I have a theory that the lesser wines of great producers are a QPR gold mine. This is a very nice wine, especially on the nose, but it made me think: Could it be that my theory works better for Italy than France? Does burgundy fit into my theory? (Or am I just catching a cold?)
