What I’ve been drink­ing this month

Decanter - - LETTERS -

The age­ing po­ten­tial of vil­lage red Bur­gundy from great pro­duc­ers is rou­tinely un­der­es­ti­mated. I re­cently en­joyed the Do­maine La­farge, Ven­dan­ges Sélec­tion­nées, Vol­nay 1993 – a bot­tling from La­farge’s best vil­lage Vol­nay parcels abut­ting the com­mune’s 1er crus. Even af­ter 24 years it is still mes­meris­ingly good. Notes of gri­otte cherry, co­coa nib and pan­forte in­tro­duce a sup­ple, silky wine with melted tan­nins and bright acid­ity.
