I assume you meant the Volnay Vendanges Selectionees? I don't think Lafarge makes any Vieilles Vignes designated wines, although he has lots of old vines. I think I remember even the Bourgogne is from 30 or 40 year old vines that were once designated Volnay.

It is as if they lack the kind of gracious love of life and hospitality that comes with having wine as a part of daily life. I'm sure it would be massively politically incorrect, but it would be fascinating if anyone did a social study examining the behavioural correlations between people who appreciate wine as food, art, etc. and those who aren't wired that way.

Oh, for the days when a dollar bought 7 francs.
