Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Michel Lafarge|
The 2020 Volnay Village opens in the glass with notes of plums and sweet red berries mingled with peonies and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, deep and perfumed, with lively acids and powdery, melting tannins, it's beautifully vibrant and refined.
The 2020 Volnay Village is completely aged in used barrel. It has a transparent nose with lifted red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit with an underlying tertiary scent. The palate is more expressive than the aromatics with juicy ripe tart red cherries, quite citric in style with orange rind and a touch of bitter lemon enlivening the finish. This should drink well for up to 15 years, possibly more.
