  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    High-toned, aromatic nose combines orange zest and clove. Sweet and aromatic in the mouth, if a bit youthfully aggressive, with floral flavors of peach and orange. Rich and persistent.

    Lafon's 2003 Meursault Goutte d'Or (white) explodes from the glass with alluring aromas of spices and roasted herbs. Deep, concentrated, and sensuous, it slathers powerful layers of honeyed minerals and spiced pears on the taster's palate. Massively flavorful, this sumptuous wine also reveals an intensely long, highly expressive finish. (Pierre Rovanni)
  • Rating: 91

    Noticeably riper on the nose with honeysuckle and freshly sliced peach notes that continue onto the rich, full-bodied and sweet flavors that possess notable dry extract and a persistent finish. This is good balance for such a concentrated wine and this should benefit from several years of bottle age.

  • 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.
