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.
2018 Volnay Vendanges Selectionnées (LAFA12218A)
Vines just below the 1ers crus, give power and density to this spicy wine. It is full of rich red fruit, and has purity and great length.
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.
2011 Beaune 1er Cru Les Grèves (LAFA22211C)
2016 Chiroubles Domaine Lafarge-Vial (LAFA50216A)
Perfumed delicate red fruit is backed by good structure and a long smooth finish.
2015 Chiroubles Domaine Lafarge-Vial (LAFA50215A)
Harvested on 27th August, and showing perfumed berry fruit and marzipan. It is smooth and dense with a lovely floral finish.
2015 Fleurie Bel Air Domaine Lafarge-Vial (LAFA54215A)
Harvested on 2nd September from two parcels: Bel Air, and Cercillon, a new acquisition just above it. It is intensely floral, elegant and fine, with appealing delicate fruit and superb length.
2014 Fleurie Bel Air Domaine Lafarge-Vial (LAFA54214A)
'Ca Pinot!' exclaimed one of our group in surprise. Indeed, it has the finesse and complexity of its well made Pinot Noir cousin further north, with lovely fruit, balance and intensity. Great stuff.
2018 Chiroubles (LAFA50218A)
The brambly fruit is fresh and supple, ripe acidity gives an appealing freshness, and there is a delicate note of raspberry on the long fine finish.
2017 Chiroubles (LAFA50217A)
Dense and pure, with rich spicy black fruit and bags of energy and length.
2018 Fleurie (LAFA52218A)
A blend of fruit from Bel Air, destemmed by hand, and Cerçillon, destemmed mechanically. There is an abundance of spicy, plummy fruit, strong floral notes and a bright fresh raspberry finish darkened by a hint of fine earthy minerality.
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.
2018 Fleurie 'La Joie du Palais' (LAFA56218A)
Old vines on a very steep slope of decomposed pink granite give an electrifying, structured wine packed with fresh red fruit, juicy acidity and a long elegant finish. It was 08:30 in the morning when we tasted this, and the temptation to swallow rather than spit was strong.
2016 Fleurie 'La Joie Du Palais' (LAFA56216A)
A very steep small vineyard, partially worked by horse. There is 15% whole-bunch fermentation here and the wine is very pure, with ripe black fruit, great energy and length.
2018 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58218C)
A monopole of the domaine, on granite and quartz soils surrounded by trees. This is a firm wine, with fine structured tannins melting at the edges, mouth-filling fresh fruit and a powerful salty minerality coming to the fore on the long 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.
2016 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58216A)
A monopole of the domaine, on granite and quartz soils surrounded by trees. There is more intensity and structure here, and the red fruit is full of energy and depth, supported by fine tannins.
2015 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58215A)
Very rich and black - blackberry, blackcurrant and black cherry - with fine tannins and a long juicy finish.
