Chiroubles Domaine Lafarge-Vial Domaine Lafarge 2017

£35.00 GBP

Frédéric Lafarge and his wife Chantal, Of Domaine Michel Lafarge, originally had sites focussed around Volnay in Burgundy. They made the decision to purchase vineyards in Beaujolais in 2014, which they called Domaine Lafarge Vial. They managed to secure several parcels of vines within Fleurie and this tiny 0.35 hectare plot in Chiroubles, with vines with an average age of 45 years.

The nose is peppery and earthy with fresh plum aromas. The palate is complex and concentrated earthy, plummy flavors that deliver lovely persistence on the balanced and complex finish.
