Issue: Issue 167
(bottled in May of 2012; all of the Lafon 2010s were bottled beween April and July of 2012 owing to their late malolactic fermentations): Good deep red. Deep aromas of blueberry compote and smoke, with suggestions of superripe fruits. Thick and sweet in the mouth, with moderate nuance but plenty of energy. Finishes with slowly building length and suave tannins supported by the wine's impressive stuffing.

The 2010 Volnay (from young vines in Santenots) boasts incredible depth and power. The intensity and structure of the vintage come through in spades. This is a decidedly muscular style of Volnay. Today it is the richest of Lafon's 2010s. It will be interesting to see the direction the wine takes over the next year.
