2006 Domaine Michel Lafarge Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs

$249.99
John Gilman 92+ The Clos du Château des Ducs from 2006 has really shut down (like so many examples of this fine vintage) and is in no mood to be bothered at the present time. Reluctantly, the wine offers up a classy (albeit closed) nose of cherries, strawberries, a bit of youthful stemminess, coffee, herb tones and a fine base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and plenty backward, with a fine core of fruit, firm tannins, excellent balance and a very long, poised finish. This wine will need at least eight or nine years of cellaring to really start to blossom, and should prove to be a very long-lived and high quality vintage of Clos du Château des Ducs. Given how closed it is today, I may be underrating it a bit. (Drink between 2018 - 2045)
