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 Chiroubles 2021, "Mid purple. A bizarre nose, green apples and toffee. More classical strawberry fruit on the palate, no great density, medium acidity and length. Retested at the end the apples are still there but the wine is fresher and better balanced."-Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
“Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2019 , Here there is more earth influence on the ripe and beautifully layered aromas of spice, violet, and plum. The gorgeously textured, refined and even more mineral-driven flavors display superb length on the equally complex finale. This is outstanding and one to strongly consider.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound
