    Cellar notes from the importer when tasting the 2017s "Naturally, the heart of the range lies within the Volnay appellation, and let’s not beat about the bush: the Clos du Château des Ducs is a candidate for best Côte de Beaune. It is a tailored wine, each and every stem plucked by hand over 30 hours, seamless in terms of tannins and armed with stunning depth and precision. This Volnay lit up the dark cellar."

    From 50+ year old vines; a 0.57ha monopole of the domaine. 100% de-stemmed (by hand!!), pneumatic pressing, indigenous yeast fermentation Aged for 18 months in oak barrels (15% new), unfiltered.

    97* points | January 2019

    The 2017 Volnay Clos du Château des Ducs is completely de-stemmed by hand this year, which took just over 30 hours according to Frédéric Lafarge. It has a very pure bouquet with redcurrant, wild strawberry, crushedstone and light rose petal aromas, more feminine than the Clos des Chênes but just as captivating. The palate is packed full of energy and vivacity, superb tension running from start to finish with the mineralité flooding acrossthe entrancing finish. Outstanding. Very pure and given that nascent energy, a long-term prospect. 95-97 Points Drink: 2023-2050
