Domaine Michel Lafarge

Michel Lafarge was one of the greatest winemakers in modern Burgundy history. He sadly passed away in January 2020 at the age of 91. His passing was marked by an outpouring of respect from all over the wine world. The domaine, now run by his son Frédéric and granddaughter Clothilde, is rightly hailed as one of the finest estates in Volnay. The domaine is farmed biodynamically, using eco-friendly resources including a band of travelling chickens to eat vineyard pests and a horse to plough between their 10 hectares of vines. The vineyards are planted on some of the best sites in Volnay and Beaune and their winemaking is sensitive but traditional, with just a small amount of new oak used to allow the wines’ finesse to shine through. The result is some of the finest-made and longest-lived wines in Burgundy.
