Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 89

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. This Volnay Clos du Chateau des Ducs 2011 from Lafarge has a refined bouquet with slightly earthy red berry fruit, and suggestions of bay leaf, tea leaf and bergamot coming through with time, although it seems just a little diffuse compared to its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with delicate red cherry and strawberry fruit. It has fine acidity with a self-effacing, light finish for a Volnay that suggests decent early drinking. [Neal Martin, 30/09/2014]

Anticipated maturity: 2015-2021

Vinous – 90-93

Bright medium red. Pure but reticent aromas of redcurrant and dried flowers. Densely packed and broad but youthfully closed and tight today, showing little in the way of easy sweetness. Plenty of dimension here but not yet filled in. Finishes long and fine. All in reserve today. [Stephen Tanzer, 01/01/2013]

JancisRobinson.com – 18.0

Old calcaire soils and quite brown. Deep gravel on top of calcaire. Not that dark. Aromatic, fresh and gentle. Quite forward. Very charming. Maybe a bit less serious than the Mitans. Glorious already. Very long, suggests there’s a glorious future for this wine too. [29/11/2012]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2032
