Robert Parker’s Review :

"Like his neighbor Jean-Marc Roulot, Benoit Ente in Puligny-Montrachet, and a few others, Dominique Lafon obtained authorization to begin picking several days ahead of the official ban de vendange. He set his crew to work over the weekend, and was finished already on the 20th of September.

The Perrieres, picked first, reached 13.8% alcohol, but all of the other wines weighed in at lower levels. Lafon insisted – and his wines testified – that the Chardonnay grapes were botrytis free, and he characterized the lees as excellent in quality and practiced “less settling than I did in the past.” That restraint – along with bright acids and pronounced minerality – makes for a richness that often expresses itself other than in creaminess.

As these wines evolved, Lafon became increasingly enthusiastic about them, and I found them much more expressive on the eve of bottling than they had been in late 2007. Incidentally, the sickly vines in Lafon’s Desiree vineyard that have given so much bottled pleasure over the years gave their last in the beautifully refined, bittersweet, and for the vintage unusually delicate and creamy 2005. “It tastes as though the vines knew they were going to be pulled out,” was Lafon’s valediction.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 93-95 points
"The 2013 Volnay 1er Cru les Champans is bestowed a more powerful nose than the Clos des Chenes with perfumed, floral red and black fruit, the new oak nicely interwoven. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe and succulent tannins, real depth and body here with great nervosité on the detailed, almost electrifying finish. What a fantastic Champans from Dominique Lafon! This should be sensational once in bottle." (2014)
