This too evidences a note of exoticism on the expressive nose of orchard fruit, especially peach and apricot, that combines with roasted hazelnut notes that continue onto the rich, full and admirably concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of punch and verve on the mouth coating finish.

Aromas of hazelnut, iodine and spice. Supple and juicy, with very good definition and finesse to its sweet peach flavor. Lovely fresh wine with bright fruit and noteworthy energy.

The Lafon 2006 Meursault Clos de la Barre offers another example of very clear, bright fruit; a polished, satiny texture yet with underlying firmness and palpable mineral density; nut oil richness; and a long, expressive finish featuring luscious lime, grapefruit, and pineapple. Along with narcissus and citrus, there are hints of coconut, vanilla, and lanolin on the nose, although only 3-4 of the 50-some barrels were new. Some of the exotic character on exhibit here can be chalked up to "late" harvest, so quickly were the grapes evolving in the four prior days of picking.
