VOLNAY, CLOS DU CHATEAU DES DUCS 1990 MICHEL LAFARGE
Volnay, Clos du Château des Ducs 1990 Michel Lafarge
Côte de Beaune, 1er Cru

At 20 years old, at a week-end supper at home, truly wonderful. A very deep colour and thick too. Deep, spicy redcurrant jelly bouquet. An immense amount of concentration - they must have limited yield to have produced this. Big, rich and tawny. Combines structure with integrated scent and elegance. Powerful stuff. One of the very best 1990s. In 2011, great depth of colour. Roses and cherries on the nose. Immensely opulent - like a ruby! Lots of allspice too. So liquorice-rich on the palate. Coffee beans and tannic structure. Smooth and full. Years ahead of it. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
