  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    (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.

    Less expressive than usual. Next to PerriŠres vines, near Combettes of Sauzet. Lots of weight and with nice fresh wild notes and weight. Nervy. Racy. Not very Charmes-like but all the elements are there. Though it's a bit light on the finish?

    The 2009 Meursault Charmes is sumptuous, sweet and layered, yet also possesses striking minerality and nuance, all of which make for a complete, totally harmonious wine. The best is saved for last, as the Charmes turns positively explosive on the finish. The Charmes is made from three parcels.

  • 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.
