Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay Champans 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Volnay|
|Brand||Domaine des Comtes Lafon|
The 2018 Volnay Les Champans 1er Cru has a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, well defined though backward, so that you have to eke out the enticing raspberry, black currant, iodine and violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with juicier, fatter tannins than the Clos Des Chenes. Ripe and vivacious, this is extremely persistent on the finish and feels very complete. I love it. Superb.
Exhibiting aromas of cassis, rich soil tones and smoky blackberries, the richest, most muscular red in the cellar is the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Champans, a medium to full-bodied, ripe and powerful wine with a fleshy core of fruit and a long, heady finish.
