Meursault-Perrières 1er Cru 2009, Domaine des Comtes Lafon
The mammoth mid-morning tasting at the domaine continued with this Meursault-Perrières 2009. When should you choose a Charmes over a Perrières? If you are dining with an optimistic, sweet-natured and humorous friend select the Charmes. They will adore the wine and you. If you dine with an intellectual friend, a philosopher or a wine connaisseur choose the Perrières. They will appreciate your choice. That said, this Perrières already offers more than the Meursault-Charmes. Deep, ripe lemon, hints of oak, autumn apple, vanilla. On the palate wonderful ripe lemon fruit again. This Perrières is powerful with superb clean fruit and a real potency. A luxury wine for lobster and scallops!
