Under-the-Radar Lafarge
2013 Lafarge Volnay Vendanges Sélectionnées

Posted by Ian McFadden

The Vendanges Sélectionnées may be the hidden gem of Lafarge’s line-up.

I'm happy to offer the 2013 Volnay VS at the lowest price around.

Lafarge is a very special producer for me. I love the entire line-up. With all that said, I have a soft spot for the VS. The wine offers such nuance, depth and finesse for the price. It’s easily one of the best deals in Volnay. The VS keeps a low profile for how much complexity and value that it offers up year-after-year.

The VS is a selection of the domaine's best village-level parcels. Compared to Lafarge’s regular Volnay, the VS seems to consolidate and amplify everything. There’s an extra layer of intensity, but it’s delivered with an almost effortless grace and elegance.

Lafarge's 2013s impress with their crackling brightness and brilliant clarity. The vintage was far from a simple one for the Côtes de Beaune. And somehow Lafarge figured out a way to produce wines that amaze. The detail, precision and harmony make them jump off the page.

Everything is in place for this wine to age really beautifully over the next seven or so years. The only drawback here is the limited quantity. Lafarge's production was down 65% in 2013.
