"This is built on its minerality... " -Burghound

Lafarge's 2015s are stunning. "They may very well have made the wines of the vintage from the Côte de Beaune... if you can find them, buy them."

Today, I'm very happy to offer Lafarge's 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots Rouge for $124.95 per bottle. 

There's something magical and captivating about Lafarge's wines and their understated grace. I'm always excited to be able to offer the wines.

While Lafarge's wines from Volnay captures many people's interests, it would be a mistake to overlook their work in Beaune. They can be soaring and rigorous in their incredibly detailed mineral expression. 

The 2019 Clos des Aigrots is a glorious expression of this. It offers up a jaw-dropping clarity. There's a finessed core of stony minerality along with beautiful high tones of spice, red fruits, and floral notes. 

Lafarge is one of our favorite producers; there is just something about the delineation, the fine-ness, and the purity of the wines. I'm very happy to be able to offer this.

Burgundy: "Here the expressive nose is even fresher and cooler with elegant and airy aromas of red pinot fruit that is generously cut with wet stone, floral and discreet spice nuances. There is a beguiling sense of vibrancy to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that flash excellent delineation on the focused, pure and impeccably well-balanced finish. This is built on its minerality and while moderately firm, should still be approachable young if desired."
