2006 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay Clos des Chenes
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[93]

"An explosively-concentrated 2006 Volnay Clos Des Chenes mingles cherry, redcurrant, ginger, orange peel, iodine, and bitter-sweet herbal and cherry pit concentrate, projecting confidence in its role as the Lafarge flagship. A wealth of largely ineffable but prominently chalky and saline mineral nuances lends intrigue, while hints of marzipan and caramel sneak onto the back palate, enhancing the sense of ripeness to this wine's sappy fundament of fruit. It manages to be texturally plush while displaying fine-grained underlying tannic structure, and finishes with detonative dynamic of tumbling fruits and minerals, uniting both refreshing brightness and a persistent sense of richness. Here is one 2006 that will surely be worth following for 12-15 years." - David Schildknecht, robertparker.com (Dec 21, 2009)
