2016 Bourgogne Passetoutgrains 'L'Exception', Michel Lafarge

Produced in every vintage since the foundation of the domaine, this 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay is the perfect introduction to the wines of Domaine Lafarge. The vines are the same age as Michel himself (89, since you ask). Fresh and balanced, with fine, silky tannins. And impressive depth, too.

2016 Bourgogne Passetoutgrains 'L'Exception', Michel Lafarge
Domaine Michel Lafarge

Stepping into the Lafarge cellar in central Volnay is an experience, and how one might imagine a Burgundy cellar should be. In this veritable trove, blanketed in life-giving mould, are born some of Burgundy’s greatest wonders. The wines crafted by Frédéric, his daughter and his father Michel, now in his 80s, boast an unbeatable ability to age, even for Pinot Noir. It’s no wonder that he, alongside D’Angerville and de Montille, helped put Volnay on the map.
