"This is potentially brilliant and very much worth your interest"
2020 Lafarge Volnay Premier Cru Clos des Chenes

Posted by Ian McFadden

There's something magical and captivating about Lafarge's wines and their understated grace.

I'm always excited to be able to offer his wines.

Lafarge is one of our favorite producers; there is just something about the delineation, the fineness, and the purity of the wines. They are wines that offer a truly soulful drinking experience.

Lafarge's wines are known for their gorgeous clarity and precision. Clos des Chênes represents the pinnacle of these elements. For me, like so many others, there’s a level of refinement that makes it stand out. As it always is, Lafarge's Clos des Chênes is one of three or four top examples of Volnay in 2020. 

Lafarge is known for possessing beautiful clarity matched to a sturdy structure. The 2020 Clos des Chênes is a textbook example of this. It's a bottle that will sing after a decade or two in the cellar. The precision, concentration, and balance make the ageability factor obvious.

Lafarge's 2020 is incredible. I'll close the email with a quote from Burghound: "Readers may recall that I could scarcely have been more enthusiastic about the Lafarge 2019s but the quality of their 2020s is just as good if not better. If you can find them, don't hesitate as they are, almost across the board, stunning." We couldn't agree more.
