I was wiped out after a long day yesterday, had a quiet night with a
couple of books, the dog, some D'Artagnan chicken and wild mushroom
sausages, and the 2000 Michel Lafarge"Vendanges Selectionnees" Volnay.
More pretty than powerful, beautful black cherry fruit with accents of
sandalwood and spice. Tannins are resolved, acidity is fairly low for a
Lafarge. Seems to pick up weight through evening. Very approachable
now, but don't think there's any danger of this falling apart anytime
soon. Lovely wine, A-
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
