2017 PASSETOUTGRAIN L'Exception (LAFA06217A)
Half Pinot and half Gamay from 90-year-old vines give a very spicy, ripe and rounded wine with lovely energy, fine tannins and considerable charm.
2017 BOURGOGNE ROUGE (LAFA08217A)
Rich red fruit shades to a spice-laden black, and there is lots of bright energy through to the smooth plummy finish, adding up to something very enticing.
2017 VOLNAY (LAFA10217A)
There is depth and sweetness to the juicy red fruit, the tannins are firmly on the silky spectrum and there is a pleasant mineral note on the finish.
2017 VOLNAY Vendanges Selectionnées (LAFA12217A)
From vines just below the 1ers crus, this is warm, spicy and rich, with depth, balance and bright crunchy acidity.
2017 BEAUNE 1er cru, Grèves (LAFA22217A)
96-year-old vines in one of Beaune's best vineyards give generous, juicy, very spicy wine with supple rounded tannins that build in intensity, joined on the intense long finish by a fresh saline note.
2017 VOLNAY 1er cru, Les Caillerets (LAFA23217C)
Years of frost and hail hit the old vines of the Caillerets hard, and so in 2017 half of them were grubbed up. Sadly, this means that quantities, already small, will diminish further. And yet the wine is spectacular: there is very pure red fruit and fine elegant tannins; despite its great intensity it has a relaxed seamless feel to it, and the finish is vibrant and long.
2017 VOLNAY 1er cru, Les Mitans (LAFA28217A)
What's this - a gentle stemmy note at Lafarge' For the first time Frédéric has experimented with whole-bunch fermentation, and it is a singular success: this most Volnay of Volnays has structure, generous ripe spicy fruit and a fine fresh finish.
2017 CHIROUBLES (LAFA50217A)
Dense and pure, with rich spicy black fruit and bags of energy and length.
2017 FLEURIE (LAFA52217A)
A blend of vineyards around the domaine that were damaged by frost, with yields of just 8 hl/ha. It is savoury and juicy, with lots of energy and power, and a great deal of concentration; there is lovely fresh red fruit on the finish.
2017 FLEURIE, Clos Vernay (LAFA58217A)
A monopole of the domaine, on granite and quartz soils surrounded by trees. Spared by the hail, the vines have given a charming, fluid wine with juicy ripe fruit, firm but fine tannins and a bright seamless finish.
2017 COTE DE BROUILLY (LAFA60217A)
A new acquisition, leased vines nearly sixty years old on blue granite soil. This is juicy and round, with an abundance of spicy raspberry fruit, structured fine tannins and good persistence.
2017 BOURGOGNE ALIGOTE Raisins Dor?s (LAFA02217A)
All the clear brightness of a good Aligot' combined with the ripe roundness of the vintage: lovely!
2017 MEURSAULT (LAFA03217A)
Not produced since 2015. The fruit is rounded, nutty and ripe, and kept on the straight and narrow by a vibrant streak of lemony acidity.
2017 BEAUNE BLANC 1er cru, Clos des Aigrots (LAFA04217A)
The fruit is poised and ripe, and there is energy and depth to this rounded balanced wine, which finishes on refreshing saline note.
