More Vintages and Sizes of Comtes Lafon - Volnay Santenots du Milieu 1er Cru:

Issue: Issue 26
(from 40 year old vines planted in shallow, high clay content soil sitting on a bed of solid rock) This is notably more elegant with a pretty nose of ripe red pinot fruit with undertones of forest floor that complements perfectly the delicious, fresh and sweet mouth coating flavors that are really impressively refined and silky. Despite the low yields, this is not particularly dense though it retains a fine sense of balance.

($73) Good bright, dark red. Primary aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very fresh and densely packed, with a ripe blueberry flavor and a lush texture for the vintage. This is fat with material and finishes strong, with dusty tannins mounting with aeration. I find this a bit finer than the 2001 was at the same stage, but Lafon says the 2001 is as good.
