Description

“Lafon’s 2011 Volnay Santenots is one of the most reticent wines of the vintage. With time in the glass, the Santenots opens up a bit, showing its expressive aromatics and silky, layered fruit. There is a crystalline purity to the 2011 that is impossible to miss. Dark red and purplish fruit and floral notes add lift on the precise finish. The 2011 is going to need time to fully blossom in bottle, but it is exquisite, even today.” 93+ Antonio Galloni

“Good bright medium red. The most complex and complete of these 2011s on the nose, offering scents of black cherry, menthol, wild herbs and sexy underbrush; sappy and ripe but with noteworthy medicinal reserve. Silky on entry, then thick, bright and highly concentrated, with the violet and licorice lift and firm spine of acidity of a top Cote de Nuits wine. Lovely focus and dark fruit intensity here. Finishes bright and long, with serious but fine-grained tannins. This should age beautifully.” 92+ Steve Tanzer
