  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($73) Good bright, dark red. Primary aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice. Very fresh and densely packed, with a ripe blueberry flavor and a lush texture for the vintage. This is fat with material and finishes strong, with dusty tannins mounting with aeration. I find this a bit finer than the 2001 was at the same stage, but Lafon says the 2001 is as good.

    While most of these wines say 13% on the label, this one says 14%! Pretty dark crimson. Something rather cheesy on the nose. The fruit could be fresher on the nose, though it is admirably crunchy and lively and crackling on the palate. Acidity well integrated. This is a bigger, more muscular wine than most, though still youthful.

  • 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.
