Volnay Santenots du Milieu Comtes Lafon 2009 (750ML)
95+ WA 91-93 BH 92 IWC
"Good deep red-ruby. Black plum, black cherry and chocolate on the nose. Superrich and sweet; a real fruit bomb of dark cherry and raspberry, but a firm spine of acids and tannins keeps it lively on the palate. Complicating notes of licorice, bitter chocolate and flowers. The almost glyceral impression of sweetness comes from fully ripe fruit and the wine's 13.5% alcohol, notes Lafon. Deceptively open-knit today owing to its sheer richness...92" IWC 3/12 "Outstanding....A distinctly ripe nose of cassis and pinot liqueur aromas dissolves into rich, mouth coating and relatively muscular large-scaled flavors that possess an abundance of dry extract. There is really lovely detail on the impressively complex and persistent finish. This should reward up to a decade of cellar time and as a point of comparison, this isn't as fine as the 2010 version but it's significantly more powerful...93" BH 04/12 "Lafon’s 2009 Volnay Santenots boasts extraordinary polish and sheer class. Crushed flowers, licorice, red berries and minerals are all woven together in a fabric of notable refinement. The Santenots is quite rich, but also refined as it literally floats on the palate. This is a dazzling showing from Dominique Lafon..95+" WA 04/12
