Volnay Clos du Chateau des Ducs Michel Lafarge 2009 (750ML)
93-95 WA 94 BH 90-93 IWC
"The 2009 Clos du Ch√Ęteau des Ducs is a beautifully reserved and elegant rendition of the vintage. The deep and classic nose delivers scents of cherries, blood orange, vinesmoke, fresh herb tones, a very complex base of soil and a topnote of cocoa. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, tight and very, very long on the backend, with impeccable balance, superb focus and impressive grip on the ripely tannic and youthful finish. This will be stellar in the fullness of time...93+" JG 11/10 "...saturates the palate with its deep, persistent fruit. The aromas and flavors build in the glass towards the rich, multi-dimensional finish. This shows marvelous staying power and fabulous overall balance. The Clos du Chateau des Ducs is more overtly fruit-driven and structured but perhaps a touch less aromatically expressive than the Mitans...93-95" WA 05/11 "Outstanding: This is aromatically a bit less elegant than the Mitans but it is more complex with cool red and blue pinot fruit, violet, earth and stone nuances introducing attractively rich and equally pure middle weight flavors that exhibit real verve on the mouth coating and exceptionally persistent finish.
