92 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A more restrained nose reluctantly offers up a bit more deeply pitched nose of violet, plum and anise hints. The sleek, delicious and beguilingly vibrant medium weight flavors culminate in a dusty, complex and sneaky long finish. While this is labeled as a villages, it performs at a 1er level." 4/19

90 Points, John Gilman, View from The Cellar: "The Comtes Lafon Volnay villages cuvée is always a lovely bottle for mid-term consumption and it was nice to see it back in the lineup again in this vintage, after not being produced last year, due to the very short crop. The backbone of this bottling are the relatively younger vines in Champans, as with a normal crop again in 2017, Dominique Lafon was able to bottle the ninety-eight year-old vines in Champans on their own this year. The 2017 Volnay AC offers up a fine, black fruity nose of sweet dark berries, black cherries, bitter chocolate, pigeon, dark soil tones, a bit of cedar and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and nicely plump at the core, with a touch of ripe tannin and good length and grip on the well balanced and promising finish. This is a very good AC. " 12/18


92 Points, Decanter: "Dominique Lafon uses his young-vine fruit from Santenots and En Champans to make this delightfully drinkable village Volnay. Crunchy, fresh and vibrant, it has pomegranate and wild strawberry fruit, gentle, fine-grained tannins and some sweet spice from 20% new wood." 10/18
