Notes
Deep red. The most perfumed of these 2007s, offering aromas of black cherry, licorice, violet and minerals. Lush, sweet and seamless, with complex flavors of cherry and flowers along with a whiff of game. This really coats the mouth and builds, finishing with suave tannins and lingering perfume. Has the stuffing to age but also offers early accessibility. This was tight from barrel and has unfurled nicely.

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Comte Lafon's cellars are deep beneath the ground, believed to be some of the deepest and coolest in Burgundy. Here, Dominique nurtures the golden produce of his 32 acres of land in the Meursault, Montrachet, Monthélie and Volnay appellations. The wines reach levels of quality rarely attained and certainly not surpassed by other growers in Burgundy or, indeed, the world. They are the result of intense arduous work in the vineyard (where strict organic and biodynamic methods are set in place) and Dominique’s expert eye in the cellars. Such is the intensity and concentration of the whites that even the Village Meursault, a blend of young vines from Charmes, young vines from Clos de la Barre and vines from within the Meursault villages appellation, requires a longer than average élévage period in barrel which usually exceeds 20 months.
