"Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Volnay 1er Cru Champans from Comtes Lafon has an endearing bouquet, one that is very harmonious: crushed strawberry and cranberry, fine mineralité and great delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with deftly chiseled tannin. This is very pure and refined, silky smooth in texture with a sensual, poised finish that lingers long in the mouth. What a gorgeous Volnay Champans from Dominique Lafon this is turning out to be! Tasted September 2017." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #233

"Medium red. Riper aromas of plum, redcurrant, medicinal cherry and milk chocolate. Nicely concentrated but closed; shows more material than the Clos des Chènes but not quite the seductive juiciness or floral lift of that wine. This a more medicinal style, with good inner-mouth tension and structure." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
