Michel Lafarge Volnay ‘Caillerets’ Premier Cru 2017

From a tiny parcel measuring 0.28 ha of vines planted in 1957. 100% de-stemmed, pneumatic pressing, indigenous yeast fermentation Aged for 18 months in oak barrels (15% new), unfiltered.

The 2017 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru, which lost 40% of its vines after Frédéric Lafarge pulled up the oldest 60-year old vines after the frost damage, has the most “exotic” bouquet amongst Lafarge’s 2017s. Although the Caillerets remains within that idiom of “classic Burgundy”. The palate is medium-bodied, feisty and spicy on the entry with hints of dark chocolate and espresso that tincture the red berry fruit. I find the oak just leaving a mark on the finish that will be subsumed by the time it is in bottle. Very fine. 90-92 Points Drink: 2021-2038 Neil Martin vinous.com Jan 2019
