Lafarge is one of the great names in Volnay, some would say the greatest. His wines are sought out the world over, and we are always excited when our allocation arrives.

Lafarge’s home territory is Volnay, though he also has holdings in nearby Beaune and Meursault. This is an old estate that started bottling their wines in the early 1900s. Only Armand Rousseau, the DRC, and maybe two or three other growers have that kind of history.

The wines of Lafarge are magical. Despite being made in a decidedly old-school style—really no different than a generation or even two ago—they display incredible purity and not a hint of rusticity. It is the same kind of magic that Jacky Truchot was able to conjure. We only wish we could get more.

"Frédéric Lafarge's 80-year-old vines are located on the eastern side of the RN74 , like many of the Côte de Beaune's most venerable Aligoté parcels. Picked very late on September 24th because of the grape's pronounced levels of acidity, this lightly wooded white is rich, complex and self-assured with aromatic spices and pithy, citrus-edged acidity."
