Tasting Note eRobert Parker 90/100 (2010) Antonio Galloni Dominique Lafon’s 2010 Volnay is gorgeous. Salty veins of minerality support layers of vibrant red fruit in this articulate, precise wine. Sweet roses and flowers of all sorts add lift on the fresh, gracious finish. This is a fabulous wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2012+. Wine Spectator 89/100 (2012) Spicy, offering cinnamon, nutmeg, cherry and strawberry flavors on a juicy texture. On the elegant side, yet focused, with a mouthwatering finish. Best from 2016 through 2025. BH 88/100 (2011) A pretty and notably ripe nose of plum, dark berries and a touch of earth leads to attractively rich, round and velvety middle weight flavors that possess good balance and length if only average depth. Still, this is an attractive villages that should be relatively accessible young. Note further that initially it was a bit tight with noticeable gas yet with a bit of air it became much more agreeable.
