Fruit for this wine comes from vineyards planted in 1988 on a southeast facing slope of pebble-filled clay and limestone. Whole clusters were crushed slowly and began fermentation spontaneously. Vinification took 15 months in oak that was 10% new. The resulting wine was fined with Bentonite and lightly filtered. Demeter certified Biodynamic.

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.
