Domaine des Comtes Lafon 2019 Volnay 1er Cru "Les Santenots du Milieu"
Volnay 1er Cru Santenots-du-Milieu is about 8 hectares in total surface area, meaning this domaine owns almost half of the appellation. Their parcel has a high proportion of old vines. The wines are dark in color, rich, and deep, with noticeable tannins but always elegant.
"Those who overlook Lafon’s reds do so at their own peril. The Volnay Santenots du Milieu is a prime example. The domaine owns 4ha in this climat, considered among the greatest in Volnay. Only the old vines are used, some of which are more than eighty years of age.The gentle winemaking here gives the wine a lovely, perfumed ripe cherry character, floral notes and a distinct minerality, while the texture shows elegant, fine-grained tannins, surprising freshness and a marvellous finesse. Drinking: Window 2024 - 2039." 95 Points Decanter
