  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 92

    Elegant and intense. Lovely caramel, spice, toasted notes and lots of ripe fruit, including some tropical and papaya notes. Quite intense on the long-lingering finish, with a dried herb character. 448 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96

    Highly aromatic nose of lime, lemon, orange oil and minerals, along with a hint of oak char. Very dense, tactile and rich; thoroughly ripe but uncompromisingly dry. The wine great thickness is leavened by strong minerality. Outstanding slow-mounting finish hints at citrus fruits, minerals and flowers. A great Perrieres.

    The demure aromas of the 1999 Meursault Perrieres reveal hints of stones and minerals. Light to medium-bodied and detailed, this is a delicate, elegant wine. Its nuanced flavors, mostly freshly cut flowers and minerals, are rather shy, yet subtle and exquisite.

  • Burghound | Rating: 94

    Wonderfully penetrating nose with knife-like delineation that offers white flowers, hazelnut and pear notes followed by precise flavors dripping with minerality and knockout intensity. The intensity builds from the mid-palate and continues on to the long, dynamic, harmonious finish. This is undeniably of grand cru quality and must be tasted to be believed. Sensational quality and while this is approaching its apogee, it will clearly age effortlessly for years. Another bottle was equally good and just as youthful. Note: the bottle in the big PerriŠres tasting displayed a touch of oxidation.

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.
