Professional Reviews For This Wine


Burghound | Rating: 93

Here too there is a very mild touch of reduction that doesn't completely mask the ripe white and yellow orchard fruit aromas. There is first-rate intensity to the mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that evidence really lovely purity of expression on the explosive and driving saline-infused finish. This is clearly a Charmes from the upper part of the vineyard as there is none of the borderline excessive generosity of the lower portion.

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.

About This Producer


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.
