Frédéric Lafarge said that the fires and smoke to combat the freeze at the end of April saved the vintage. Harvesting began on 1 September with the Volnay-Clos du Château des Ducs and Pommard-Pézerolles and then ceased until 5 September. When vineyards suffer from a freeze (as opposed to hail), the following year, they tend to produce abundantly. Here, the yields were nevertheless restricted, with the premiers crus averaging about 35hl/ha. As always at Lafarge, the grapes were completely destemmed. Finesse, lightness, and elegance are all present in the Volnay-Caillerets but the wine needs time. In our experience, Lafarge reds often have a core of firm, slightly chalky tannins that are a little edgy in youth, but give the wines longevity and make them great candidates for the cellar.
