Description

Aigrots has a rich clay loam soil with a fine dusting of gravel like stones that yields a lavish style with some minerality. This is an excellent pick in 2019; what is too often a little over ripe is now ripe, but with high tensile structure to balance. Stunning. 2020 to 2025

Producer Information: Domaine Michel Lafarge

In recent years, Michel Lafarge’s reds have become the most sought after in the Cotes de Beaune. He is a committed and studious man who appears to have arrived at a near perfect formula. Of his 8 hectares, only one is of 1er Cru standing, but their fruit combines delicious Pinot flavours with layers of firm mineral character and delicate vanilla from a short-ish oak ageing. There is consistent depth, complexity and perfect balance across the range.

The domaine is now run by Michel’s son Frederic. Frederic has a well earned reputation as a leading biodynamic viticulteur, keeping chickens in the Clos de Chateau des Ducs and reviving some ancient methods.
