    The 2011 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres, which was bottled later than Genevrieres around the end of April, has a beautifully defined bouquet of quince, a hint of peppermint and Clementine that opens wonderfully in the glass. The palate is extremely well-balanced from the start. There is intensity and animation in this Perrieres, shimmering with citrus lemon and apricot on the entry, a spicy undertow of white pepper and even marmalade running alongside. Very deep on the finish, this is a fabulous wine. Drink 2014-2028.

    Bright pale yellow. Deeply pitched nose offers pineapple, stone and caramel oak. Plush on entry, then suave and vibrant in the middle, with a strong element of powdered stone framing and lifting the stone fruit and subtle spice flavors. A wine of great finesse and inner-mouth tension. Finishes bracing and long, leaving the mouth vibrating.

  • 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.
