TASTING NOTES

"A brooding and overtly floral nose combines notes of rose petal, violet and lavender with those of spiced plum, red currant and a whiff of earth. Lafon's Santenots is typically a fairly muscular wine but in 2016 it is more a wine of refinement though I stress that there is excellent concentration and punch on the impeccably well-balanced finish that flashes just a hint of austerity. Despite the refinement, make no mistake that this is a firmly structured wine that should be capable of aging effortlessly for years." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 74

"Bright crimson. Slightly reticent nose – no bad thing in a young burgundy – but lots of density and potential with a fine balance between ripe fruit, acidity, and still quite a bit of fine tannin. Utterly Volnay." JancisRobinson.com
