1998 Michel Lafarge Clos du Chateau des Ducs
In Stock: 0
As I mentioned in the 1998 vintage summary (see Issue 1, pages 7-8), Volnay was one of the Côte de Beaune communes that performed particularly well in 98 and this wine is a compelling example of that success. Exquisite aromas of minerals and pure pinot extract that lean decidedly toward red fruits followed by intense, beautifully delineated and quite fine flavors that have a certain delicacy to them. There is a hint of astringency on the finish but there is more than adequate sève to buffer these tannins as the wine ages. Reference standard Volnay and worth a special search.
