2009 Volnay Mitans Michel Lafarge

Average critic rating : 94.0 points



The 2009 Volnay Les Mitans is impressive. A highly expressive, beautifully articulated bouquet leads to a core of dark red fruit, mint and crushed flowers. This is an explosive, textured Mitans graced with incredible class and a crystalline purity that is hard to fully describe. The finish is simply eternal. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. ||This is a stunning set of wines from Michel Lafarge. The estate farms biodynamically. The wines were left on their gross lees through the malos, which ended in April-May. Lafarge did one racking, in August, 2010, when he moved the wine off their gross lees, leaving just the fine lees. I tasted the 2009s from barrel. Lafarge planned to bottle later in Spring 2011 with no fining or filtration, as is his usual custom.||A Becky Wasserman Selection, Le Serbet, various American importers, including: Martin Scott Wines, Little Neck, NY; tel.
