About this Item

Beaune 1 Cru Aigrots, 2010
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
Domaine Lafarge, located in Volnay, was established in the 18th century and has remained in the family since. Michel Lafarge joined the family business and began working with his father in the late 1940s. Michel was a pioneer in biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy and also one of the first to start bottling his wines for export. Today Lafarge is managed by Michel’s son, Frédéric, and is known to produce some of the most sought-after Volnay wines.

Critics Ratings

'A very fresh and distinctly cool nose offers up notes of bright red currant and plenty of stone influence that continues onto the detailed and racy yet fleshy medium weight flavors that possess fine balance and excellent persistence on dusty and refined finish. This is an elegant Beaune with exceptionally fine tannins.' -  Allan Meadows, Burghound, 92/100  

Subtle and introverted at first then explodes on the mid-palate and finish. It boasts lovely inner perfume and sweetness as the aromas and flavors flesh out in the glass. This is a beautiful showing from Lafarge. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.' - Wine Spectator, 92/100
