Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2021

R724.99 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 20221, “A slightly riper yet cool and wonderfully fresh nose combines notes of spice and pepper with those of both red and dark gamay fruit. There is solid volume and lovely mid-palate density, though here too the finish is a bit lean with a touch of asperity.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2021

R724.99 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2021, "Pretty aromas include those of raspberry, cherry, earth and a suggestion of crushed fennel. This isn't quite as dense but I very much like the sense of energy to the medium weight flavors that possess slightly better depth, though like the Joie du Palais, the balance isn't perfect." - Allen Meadows', Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2018 "A slightly more elegant is otherwise similar aromatic profile introduces punchy, well-detailed and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that also deliver excellent length and depth on the slightly more firmly structured finale. This too is worth your interest." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2020 Magnum

R1,150.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2020 "The vineyards are Belair and Cercillon. Clean mid purple. No great bouquet first up. Then it starts to builds, with peonies. A little more tension and structure compared to Chiroubles, nicely nuanced in pretty red fruit, good acid balance and persistence." - Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2020 Magnum

R1,195.00 inc. VAT
“A more deeply pitched and slightly riper nose blends notes of poached plum, warm earth and more prominent pepper nuances. There is better density to the beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundance of dry extract buffering the firm tannic spine shaping the youthfully austere, sappy and seriously long finale. This is excellent and absolutely worth your interest.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie La Joie du Palais 2020 Magnum

R1,195.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie "Joie de Palais" 2020, This is exceptionally pretty, indeed blind it could easily pass for a wine of pure Pinot rather than 100% gamay with its cool and layered aromas of various red berries, spice and soft pepper wisps. There is even better refinement to the detailed and minerally if slightly less complex flavors that conclude in a dusty and mildly austere is solidly persistent finish. Lovely." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2020

R595.00 inc. VAT
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Côte de Brouilly 2020, "An overtly peppery nose of various dark berries and earth nuances lead to supple, round and relatively refined middle weight flavors that possess an appealing texture thanks main to the fine-grained tannins shaping the moderately firm finale. Note that this could be enjoyed soon after release or held for 5 to 7 years first." - Allen Meadows', Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie La Joie du Palais 2019

R630.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie "Joie de Palais" 2019, This too is attractively elegant and admirably pure with its even more floral suffused aromas of essence of dark berries that are laced with discreet spice wisps. There is fine volume and delineation to the vibrant and intensely mineral-driven medium weight flavors that firm up as the strikingly long finish sits on the palate. Even so, I suspect that this will be approachable after 3 to 4 years if you enjoy your Bojo on the younger side." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Chiroubles 2020

R550.00 inc. VAT
"Domaine Lafarge-Vial Chiroubles 2019, Peppery liqueur-like aromas of plum and dark berries precede the sleekly textured, delicious and vibrant middle weight flavors that conclude in a delineated, balanced and impressively complex finale. This possesses fine quality and development potential."- Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Chiroubles 2018

R495.01 inc. VAT
Offering up inviting aromas of blackberries, cassis and cherries mingled with hints of licorice and grilled meats, the 2018 Chiroubles is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a generous core of lively fruit, tangy acids and fine, powdery tannin. This characterful, classically proportioned Chiroubles is a great success.

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2018

R635.00 inc. VAT
Aromas of cherries, raspberries and plums mingle with hints of burning embers and potpourri in a deep and complex bouquet that introduces the 2018 Fleurie Clos Vernay. Medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it's layered and succulent, with an ample core of fruit, lively acids and powdery structuring tannins. The inherent charm and suppleness of the vintage lends this considerable appeal out of the gate, but like all the Lafarge-Vial wines, it's really built for a bit of bottle age.

Lafarge-Vial Fleurie La Joie du Palais 2018

R575.00 inc. VAT
Beautifully vibrant and precise, the 2018 Fleurie Joie de Palais wafts from the glass with a pretty bouquet of raspberries, red plums, peonies and sweet soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, lively and elegant, it's built around fine, powdery tannins and a tangy spine of acidity. Built for the cellar, this will show beautifully after four or five years of bottle aging, and it will continue to improve for a decade or more.

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie 2018

R595.00 inc. VAT
Generous and gourmand, the 2018 Fleurie bursts from the glass with aromas of ripe cherries, blackberries, rose petals and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, it's fleshy and enveloping but—like all the domaine's wines—remains bright and precise despite its dark fruit tones and broad shoulders. Powdery tannins assert themselves gently on the finish.
