More Vintages and Sizes of Comtes Lafon - Meursault Charmes 1er Cru:
Author: Allen Meadows
(Note: a blend of fruit coming from 35+ and 75+ year old vines all in Charmes Dessus, which is the best part directly below PerriÃ¨res and abutting Combettes) Aromatically, this is almost a hypothetical blend of the Genevrieres and the Goutte d'Or but here there is even more intensity to the mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that evidence really lovely purity of expression on the explosive and driving finish. This is clearly a Charmes from the upper part of the vineyard as there is none of the borderline excessive generosity of the lower portion.

(bottled ten days before my visit): Very closed, slightly reduced nose offers citrus fruits, vanilla, hazelnut and white truffle. Rich, sweet, pliant and deep; this has the weight and depth of the biggest California chardonnays but more energy and finesse than all but the very finest of them. Strong extract here contributes to an impression of increasing freshness. Really saturates the mouth and reverberates on the round, dry finish.
