    (from fruit picked early, on the second day of the harvest, with 13.8% potential alcohol) Knockout nose combines peach, crushed stone and oatmeal. A step up in sweetness and opulence from the foregoing samples: fat, silky and thick yet conveying an impression of weightlessness. Peach and orange flavors are joined by piquant spices and mounting minerality on the extremely long and thoroughly ripe aftertaste. An impressively complete example of this great site.

    A high-toned nose of white flowers and mineral-inflected aromas display some reduction but not enough to dominate them. The beautifully precise middle weight flavors have begun to round out though to be sure, there remains admirable precision and outstanding length. This is an unusually dense '04 as there is plenty of dry extract that gives a real sense of volume and mid-palate density. A genuinely excellent effort that can already be approached with pleasure though there would be no harm in allowing it to continue to slumber in the cellar for a few more years first.

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.
