Volnay Santenots du Milieu 1er Cru, Comtes Lafon (magnum) - 2019

  • Provenance: Burgundy
  • Appellation: Volnay
  • Domain: Comtes Lafon
  • Grape variety(ies): Pinot noir (la moyenne d'âge est supérieure à 30 ans, les plus vieilles vignes ont 60 ans, les plus jeunes 3 ans).
  • On-call time: 30 years
  • Alcohol degree: 14%
  • 209 Classement: Premier Cru
From one of the greatest red wine terroirs of the Côte de Beaune, which some even consider a Quais Grand Cru, this middle Santenots is a spectacular success. It exudes cherry, violet, blackberry and creosote notes, and its full-bodied, perfectly deployed texture and superb tannic base are of extreme finesse. A wine of great purity and complexity. A great Burgundy for laying down!

Viticulture

This is the best part of the Santenots appellation, once classified as the top of the range by Dr Lavalle. In several parcels that Jules Lafon (Dominique's great-grandfather and founder of the estate) bought successively, it is a total of 3.8 hectares of vines. Exposed to the East, with very clayey red soil, not very deep on a hard limestone subsoil, the site is very sunny and precocious.

Oenology

After sorting, the grapes are received by a de-stemmer that respects the integrity of the logs as much as possible. Fermentation starts spontaneously and slowly. The grapes are devatted and pressed after 15/20 days of maceration. The wine is put into barrels by gravity. The proportion of new barrels is about 1/3. Bottling is scheduled after 18 or 22 months of ageing.
