2002 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières

Chardonnay more

5/22/2015 - Mark81 wrote: 93 points

"1er" Dinner at the American Club to determine which plots belong to a "Grand Cru" status. Dark yellowish gold. Nose on this was initially subdued but with time and air, this was brilliant. Methol, mint leaves with lots of toffee, caramel, orange and sweetened pineapples. Touch of smoke and char as well. On the palate, there was excellent structure and balance. Toffee, butterscotch, vanilla crème, melted butter, tangerine, buttered corn and Indian mangoes, with a lovely lingering finish. Brilliant Meursault Perrieres! Verdict on Grand Cru worthiness - Yes. And Lafon would be amongst the top 3.

"1er" Dinner at the American Club to determine which plots belong to a "Grand Cru" status. A little mature in appearance, seemed advanced for its age. Light orange. Beautiful sweet caramel nose, with tangerine and butterscotch. Slightly sweet on the palate, nice mandarin orange, mangoes and pineapples, but the lack of acidity rendered the wine slightly flabby and disjointed. Nonetheless, a really enjoyable wine that would need drinking up, based on this bottle. Verdict on Grand Cru worthiness - Yes. And Lafon would be amongst the top 3.

Quite a few things surprised me about this wine:
- It was somewhat approachable (although still dense and compact - needs time)
- Very, very muscular dark fruit. Kind of like the power of Pommard but with the flavor profile of Volnay
- Damn, it was good. Need to seek out more of these

Good colour and nose. Full bodied in the mouth, but has a slightly woody streak up front. Probably won't improve much beyond now.

Wines Tasted at HDH Auction (Tru Restaurant - Chicago IL): Slightly golden color. Mature apple on nose and palate with nice brown spice hints. Moderate, length and power. Not quite as enjoyable as another bottle from a year ago. Time to drink up.

HDH auction tasting at Tru; 5/15/2015-5/16/2015 (Chicago, IL): Very light colour, which is a great sign for Lafon. The palate is very rich and sweet, with a very sappy quality. Dense ripe fruit, but it's missing the acidic cut that I've grown accustomed to in my chardonnay. Very voluptous and fleshy, as is the house style (which isn't quite mine).

Imbibed in Provence. A spectacular wine. Vibrant, clear yellow robe. Tints of green. Youthful, yet with bags of character, texture and a punch. Balanced with butteriness, floral scents, fruits on nose and palate. Highly structured, this wine is wonderful yet and we know its has oodles of time to mature. A precocious little wine! Super!

Alex's Promotion Party (Alex and Fiona's in AMK): A great wine – this was a very enjoyable way to kick off the evening. While it had a lovely golden-yellow hue that spoke of its age, it certainly did not drink like a 30 year old wine. The nose showed really attractive notes of white fruit drizzled with gentle honeyed tones, with light notes of cream and brioche and a little seam of seashelly mineral aromas. An attractively mature bouquet, but not one belonging to a wine as old as a 1981. The palate shared that same mix of mature and youth, with lovely golden tones of honeyed stone fruit infused with a gentle minerality at first, opening up with time to show more complex tones of sweet corn, white meat and spice. The wine showed its Meursault character quite nicely in the impressive depth and fleshy roundness of its flavours, but what I really liked was how clear and pure this was in spite of its weight and maturity. It felt clean as a whistle, with a beautifully integrated stream of lemony acidity and a gentle infusion of minerality giving it a lovely sense of focus and linearity. Lovely stuff, drinking beautifully on the night.

Birthday Dinner (2) 2014 (Jade Palace, Forum Galleria, Singapore): A solid wine, but many years too young. The nose had deep, weighty aromas of black cherries and dark berries with a bit of liquered sweetness to them, alongside more savoury tones of meat, earth and herbs, a touch of oak, and then a musky whiff of wilting flowers. In keeping with the nose, the palate was rich and deep, with sappy, black-fruited flavours of dark cherries and blackberries riding on a light layer of soft, but still mouthcoating tannins. From the midpalate and moving into the finish, lovely juicy acidity came in, with motes of spice and dried herbs and a touch of woody oak lingering into the distance. This was a very masculine wine, with great depth and a muscular structure. Just a little hint of wilting flowers on the nose and then again at the finish nodded towards Volnay. A wine with a good amount of quality then, but it needs many years yet. It is all still quite primary and very structured at the moment and I would put this aside for another 5-6 years at the very least. Hopefully, any trace of all that overt oakiness will be soaked up by then as well.

Chardonnay more

5/12/2015 - William Kelley Likes this wine: 90 points

The 2010 Comtes Lafon Clos de la Barre is a nice wine, with a pretty classic Meursault nose of lemon oil, pear, almond cream and wet rocks. On the palate it is nicely focussed, with some pleasant quasi-phenolic minerality (that dissipates surprisingly rapidly in the decanter and glass) and nice textural impact. My only cause for concern was that the colour was just a little more advanced that I would have expected, and that the wine seemed to lose complexity in the decanter. Coche Dury's 2010s, for example, respond very well to a hit of oxygen, but this didn't seem to. But perhaps that's just paranoia.

Apple with a nice creamy richness and almond notes. It has a certain plumpness, but an excellent cut of minerality that keeps it lively. Finish is clean with good acidity. A very solid Meausault.

A long life ahead of it. Quite rich and round, it put to shame many far more expensive wines from this tricky vintage. No trace of 2004 oddities. I wish that I'd purchased a few more back then.

Round and mature. Most at the table didn't get near the vintage in our guessing games. Quite ready, viscous, excellent flavour which improved in the glass for several hours. My last bottle. I wouldn't recommend keeping it for long at this stage. Mine was well cellared.

2011 Burgundy Anniversary Tasting (Dig Wines, San Francisco): Light yellow. Gorgeous pear and citrus with a bit of cinnamon as well. Not a huge wine but excellent concentration and silkiness. Wonderful fruit and fine acidity. A very fine bottle that lives up to the reputation of the domain. Enjoy now or hold for a few years for even more complexity.

Light yellow in color, nose with fresh citrus fruit and a bit of cream soda. Medium palate that is quite rounded and ripe. Good acidity at the end but perhaps prem ox coming? Decent Meursault but doesn't have the focus and precision for a good Perrieres.

what a wonderful wine. loads of aromatic floral notes on the nose. nice weight on the palate with light cherry & strawberry notes with a hint of cloves (i think) on the finish. a great spring wine, should age really well over the next decade

The 1995 Lafon Perrières is getting a little fatigued at this stage, offering up a mature bouquet of tangerine, creamy oak vanillin, chicken broth and mushroom, but with no trace of oxidation. The wine holds up well in the glass but never really develops, and while there is still some acidity and texture here the overall impression is rather deflated. Perhaps this was just over-worked during its elevage?
