Domaine des Comtes Lafon-Meursault-"Clos de la Barre"-2011

Domaine des Comtes Lafon
"Clos de la Barre"

$145.00 Net

Five acre, enclosed, monopole vineyard behind the Lafon house in Meursault. Soil is shallow clay with limestone right underneath. This (partly) explains the wine’s lemony intensity, lick-a-rock earthiness and pretty lemon blossom aroma. Ample oak here, yet the intensity of the wine matches it. Still, best drinking is years away: 2020 and beyond.

Steve Tanzer, October 2013: "
Good bright yellow.  Deeply pitched aromas of ripe peach, pineapple, hazelnut, smoke and vanilla, plus a hint of orange blossom (Lafon used no new oak for this wine).  Then firmer and less round on the palate than the basic village wine, with an edge of acidity giving the finish a leaner, slightly boney impression.  This needs at least a couple years of cellaring."
