A delicious blend of pinot and gamay (50/50) from 85+ year old vines.
The Domaine Lafarge, located in Volnay, was established in the beginning of the 19th Century and has always been part of the Lafarge family. The estate now includes 12 hectares of vineyard and all the vineyards have been bio-dynamically cultivated since 2000. The Domain Lafarge has a strong focus on producing high quality wines while minimising its impact on the environment.

'The 2014 Bourgogne Passetoutgrain l'Exceptionne, 50% Gamay and 50% Pinot Noir, has a reserved bouquet that takes time to come out of its shell. There are some dried violet scents here with touches of pebble infiltrating the red fruit. The palate is clean and fresh with crisp acidity. There is nice tension here, not long but precise and citrus-fresh on the finish. Just a succulent little drop of wine.'
