Domaine Lafarge Beaune-Greves 1er Cru 2008

Great Burgundy and the Lafarge name go hand in hand. Operated by Michel, now eighty years old, and his son Frédéric, the duo meticulously farm their ten hectares of vines biodynamically, vinifying wines with very little new oak and minimal racking, allowing the natural Burgundian terroir to speak. The 2008 is mineral-driven and classic, showing fragrant notes of tart red fruit, plums, and smoke. Complex and earthy-- drink now!

Pinot Noir

Eloquent dynamic charmer of wine drinkers. Thin-skinned early-ripening seducer of wine growers. Planted everywhere but great in only a few (cool-climate) spots including its homeland of Burgundy.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
