Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 91(+?)

Bright ruby-red. Complex nose combines dark raspberry, spices, leather and menthol. Juicy but less supple than the village wine; more imploded today but boasts terrific energy and life for a wine with such sweetness. Very different in style from the fleshy, lower-pitched village wine. But this is plenty tactile and has superb fruit. Finishes with brisk acidity and excellent juicy length. I love the sappiness on display here, but this will need time in bottle.

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.
