Had a softness to it, but with good structure that didn't jump out at you

Red cherries, roses, iron, leather, mushrooms, pottery soil. Snapping acid/rough velvet tannin balance, medium bodied, juicy-satin texture, long earthy-smoky-peppery finish. Delicate aromatics, earthy palate, tannins/acid persist together on finish.

Delicate nose. Rose. Tart red cherry. Moderate secondary development. The acid on the finish is a bit more than I like.

Classic Lafarge. So much beautiful fruit, concentrated and elegant at the same time. Masses of strawberry and raspberry, some savory and mineral notes on the back palate. Supple with a nice weight

cork was funky but wine was not. still, felt a little restrained and short. should have been the wine of the night, but was usurped by the bernaudeau.

A subtle, light nose. Pretty clear red fruit. Simple but delicate. Bright and light- refreshing. A touch of green pepper

J'en ai bu quelques un des Clos des Chenes de monsieur Lafarge et ce soir il est encore différent, vraiment exceptionnel, meilleur que tous les autres que j'ai gouté. Ca devait etre le bon moment de l'ouvrir j'imagine!

Deeply earthy, spicy nose, with berried aromas and mild greenness, leafy, mushroom characteristics starting to take hold. Maybe transitional, but ridiculously elegant on the palate - clean, zippy, earthy, and approachable. May need a few more years but very drinkable now.
