Served blind - superb from the first sip, intense mineral, and what a lengthy finish! Highly recommended.

6/26/2015 - Alex G. Likes this wine: NR

Served blind - serious wine, intense mineral, very long finish, slight heat. Was shocked when it was revealed to be '06, thought it was substantially older. This is a good one to drink now, risky to hold this long term.

Popped and poured. Enchanting aromas of spice, spring flowers, ripe orchard fruit and tropical hints. Less open on palate, perhaps slightly shut down to start. Better 45 minutes later and I'd expect even better later...if any wine was left.

The 1990 Comtes Lafon was showing very youthfully, pale straw in hue, reminding me of some of the wonderful Lafon Meursaults from the 1970s and 1980s. The aromatics really began to blossom with a decant, offering up notes of subtle wheat toast, brioche, green pear, preserved lemon and iodine. On the palate the wine has a beautiful core of acidity married with lovely texture and purity, and it drinking very nicely now with no indication of any imminent decline. How nice to encounter such a strong bottle of Lafon from this era.

Rich golden yellow; some petrol and rubber in nose; rich, some rubber, little fruit, long deep aftertaste; fine but with other Lafon 2005 some oxidation, this one less so, but it's still there and given price level, status, etc ought to be (much) better

95+(ist der absolut faszinierenden Entwicklung geschuldet)
Blasses Gelb mit goldgrünen Reflexen
Wachs,Orangenzesten,Hauch Ananas,Zitrus,weisser Blütentee,zwischendurch rauchig und ganz leicht nussig.
Kleine Bitterness,frische passende Säure,voller Körper,reich,leicht seidig-schmelzig,,mehrschichtig,zeigt mit der Zeitachse über 2 Tage immer mehr Facetten,wird auch runder noch reicher,fruchtiger,Aprikosen,leichte Salzbutter.
Langer leicht süsslich fruchtiger Abgang
Ueberzeugt am 2.Tag vollends,wo er wirklich sehr fruchtig,rund,reich,tief mit wirklich extrem faszinierender Balance ,aufdreht(Zalto-Burgunderglas).
Denke hat sogar noch Potential,wenn einem nicht Premox in die Quere kommt.
Muss einen ja überzeugt haben,wenn man in dieser "Gewichtsklasse" nachbestellt und die Gefahren ignoriert

Big Time Barolo and Barbaresco Fest et al (Il Foro, Mpls, MN): Light gold color. Drank 1+ glass over an hour plus. This really was lovely, exhibiting great purity, lovely lemon, a little butter, orange peel, textured and lingering and elegant on the palate. This seemed to keep taking on more weight and depth through the evening. A wonderful bottle. 92+pts.

Got this by mistake, but it is one of my favorite wines so it worked out well. Beautiful aromatics on the nose. This is huge on the palate, but carries it off oh so well. Big bursts of flavor. Perfect balance. Long, lingering finish. This would benefit from a few years (3-5, maybe more) in the cellar if you dare risking pre-mox.

From Post Ranch Lake Louise cellar. Cork came out in pieces and wine was thin at first but developed beautifully over 2 hours. Did not decant. Turned out lovely.

One of my other co-WOTNs tonight. This had stunning purity, elegance and finesse. Laser beam taunt. Just ethereal! Danced across the palate like a ballerina. Thank Dave!

Lafon Clos de Barre 2011.
Herlig tiltalende nese, om enn noe subtil.
Fantastisk smoothness i anslaget.
Flott frukt og lineær gjennom hele smakskurven.
Finishen sitter lenge, og vinen har en nydelig balanse.
Drikker veldig bra med litt luft.
Digger dette! 92-93p

I was expecting the worst, but this was remarkably excellent.

Really fine line, great length and mouthfeel. Wonderful white burgundy, drinking really well, and youthful. The only drawback, is that this hasn't evolved much yet.

Apparently white Lafon should be drunk at latest age 5 or 6. Looking through my notes up to that age always a good experience, but after (8 yrs and older) oxidation! Also for this one, golden yellow, oxidized nose, oxidized sherry taste with some body; drinkable but that's about it

6/20/2015 - DAN BAILEY Likes this wine: NR

Uncorked, decanted and drunk over 2-3 hours. Colour was a little darker and the wine a little nuttier in some respects than I would have hoped for at this stage. However, if anything, with air, it seemed to get tighter and younger throughout the evening. A worrying combination of a wine too young/tight to enjoy and yet on the verge of POX? Shame as it had a real sense of depth and class.

David mentions "dimethyl sulfide", and while I'm not sure what that is exactly, there was clearly something wrong with this bottle. Lacking fruit, thin, metallic, volatile, aggressively unpleasant. Dumped.

Opened and served. We would suggest some decanting to help the wine develop though.
Such a beautiful wine and a pure expression of Meursault albeit still a touch too fatyt to be perfect. One cannot help but forget that this is a "village" (Unless tat person was the one paying and then he/she never forgets). Has definitely evolved since last time we tried it (9/2013 Papies 92) and seems to be ageing nicely with no premox issues. Very good. 93

One of the oldest and best mature Pinot I ever tasted.
I think I had this bottle for about 25 years or more and I was 100% sure it is gone...
No words, except - - OMG, WOW!!!
