A fresh, cool and admirably pure nose offers up a layered combination of violet, plum, anise and soft earth whispers. The delicious and vibrant middle weight flavors possess just enough mineral character to remark upon while delivering fine length on the balanced finale. This is very Volnay in style but it's Volnay with real punch.
The 2015 Volnay villages from the Lafarge family is excellent, offering up impressive purity and vibrancy on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is a classy blend of red and black cherries, red plums, gamebird, superb minerality and a topnote of raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very sappy at the core, with bright acids, lovely focus and grip and a long, seamless and moderately tannic finish. Beautiful wine. (Drink between 2024-2060)
The 2015 Volnay Village, which sees no new oak, has a clean and precise bouquet with vivacious redcurrant and cranberry aromas. There is great transparency here. The palate is medium-bodied with structured tannin, a gentle grip in the mouth; this is a masculine and structured Volnay with a pinch of cracked black pepper and undergrowth on the finish. Very fine and very serious for a village cru.(NM)
The 'regular' Lafarge Volnay is a pretty special cuvée in 2015, with a lovely nose of red plum, raspberry, woodsmoke and raw cocoa. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and elegant, with a lovely sense of reserve, and a touch more intensity and depth than usual.Drinking Window 2018 - 2040.(WK)
Bright red. Discreet aromas of medicinal black cherry and violet. Precise and pure on the palate, with intense flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and licorice framed on the subtle, rising finish by suave tannins.(ST)
