2018 Domaine Michel Lafarge Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Aigrots - France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru (11/25/2022)
Decanted 6hrs. While there is a lot to like here, this is shut down pretty hard, and took some real work to coax out some enjoyment last night. Not hard to feel this comes from a solar vintage, it simply has that density. While the acidity is perceived as on the lower end, I bet its simply buried beneath the wines semi imposing structure. I’m betting this is going to be really good, simply needs at least 5 years at a minimum. Oh, it was very fresh with some real depth on the finish.
