2018 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes #158449397
Reviews 90-92 points Wine Advocate "The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes is elegant this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of cassis, dark berries, orange rind and a deft framing of new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, with powdery tannins and good energy, displaying good focus and structural finesse. (WK)" 93 points Vinous "The 2018 Volnay Clos des Chenes 1er Cru, which was bottled earlier than the Champans, has an intense nose of black cherries, blueberry, seaweed and iodine. The palate continues that theme: saline on the entry, dense and grippy, and very nicely focused with a lively, lightly spiced finish. Real succulence here, and very good persistence; the elegance is only apparent after the wine is slipping down the throat. (NM)"

About Domaine des Comtes Lafon
When Dominique took over in 1984, the vineyard holdings were spread across Meursault, Volnay, Monthélie, and Puligny-Montrachet, with most under contract. But once those agreements expired, this tour de force got to work. He took complete control back of the vineyards, implemented organic and biodynamic practices, and built a respected reputation for honoring the terroir of each vineyard. Best known for his whites, these wines range from round and seductive to robust and serious, to a signature finesse in his Montrachet Grand Cru.
Ever since Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate declared, “Dominique Lafon is on fire, in a zone, on top of his game. He’s never made better wines, and he improves with each passing vintage,” collectors worldwide have been jumping at the opportunity to acquire these prized bottlings.
