I've been on a Lafarge buying jag as of late.
This may be my best score.
Mitans is the most incisive, lacy and blatantly mineral of Lafarge's Volnays. This is a bottle that I fall hard for every vintage.
The 2010 is just ridiculously good. I encourage you to check out the full Burghound note below; he nails the wine. When he writes, "There is an almost pungent minerality to the refined flavors that are akin to pure silk," he captures it perfectly.
There are times when I can imagine drinking nothing besides Lafarge. The 2010 Mitans is a great example of why I have such thoughts. It's so honest, soulful and profoundly classy.
