Reviews For This Wine


 
Burghound | 90

(from 40 year old vines planted in shallow, high clay content soil sitting on a bed of solid rock) This is notably more elegant with a pretty nose of ripe red pinot fruit with undertones of forest floor that complements perfectly the delicious, fresh and sweet mouth coating flavors that are really impressively refined and silky. Despite the low yields, this is not particularly dense though it retains a fine sense of balance.

($73) Good bright, dark red. Primary aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very fresh and densely packed, with a ripe blueberry flavor and a lush texture for the vintage. This is fat with material and finishes strong, with dusty tannins mounting with aeration. I find this a bit finer than the 2001 was at the same stage, but Lafon says the 2001 is as good.

About This Producer


Dominique Lafon has an unwavering loyalty to traditional winemaking, but the flexibility to know when and where progressive techniques are warranted. The vineyards are biodynamic, and wines are barrel fermented, and bottled nearly two years after harvest. Comtes Lafon has one of the deepest, coldest cellars in Burgundy and this has a most positive effect upon the stellar quality of the wines, as it allows for very lengthy, complete fermentations and aging. The result is wines that are made to last and enjoy over decades. As Clive Coates so succinctly states, "[this is] one of the few indisputably three-star white wine estates in Burgundy." Lafon specializes in Premier Cru Meursault and Volnay Pinot Noir.
