Meursault 2009, Domaine des Comtes Lafon
This domaine is one of the benchmark producers of Meursault. Often small parcels of the premier cru production are declassified into the Meursault to maintain quality and consistency at the premier cru level which enhances the Meursault. With recent vineyard acquisitions the Domaine des Comtes Lafon are poised to become the only domaine which produces all of Meursault's premieur cru. Tant de mieux pour les connaisseurs! This Meursault 2009 is barely vinified in new oak -- mostly barrels that have been used for 2 or 3 years. The wine is very linear with strong citrus flavours, focus and a smoothness on the palate. Great length, classic Meursault with excellent freshness. Ready to imbibe from 2013.
