2011 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Clos de la Barre

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!!!

Not oxidized.

A little closed and dull at the moment. Plenty of lemon, with some oatmeally characteristics. Ok length, but lacking some energy and excitement.

Not great

6/18/2015 - Wine Fool Likes this wine: 94 points

(Decanted for two hours.) The bouquet is multi-faceted and layered with vibrant strawberry, plum and violet aromas entwined with wood smoke, damp soil and a suggestion of animal musk and vanilla. This smells luxurious and expensive. Medium-bodied, the mid-palate concentration shows silky phenolic weight and density. Fully ripened yet bright, fresh flavors of cherry, strawberry, plum, earth and savory minerality are perfectly framed by an uplifting acidity. These flavors are unbelievably pure and smooth and fade slowly like a long, fruit-infused echo. And the moderately full but refined tannins provide reassuring grip. This exciting young wine already demonstrates wonderful depth, balance, and beauty. What will it be like when it comes into its own? 94 points for now but with a couple more certainly to come.

Monthly Tasting Group -- Two Single-Vineyard Double-Blind Flights (Chez John Morris): Served double-blind. The nose is ripe and powerful with licorice, black cherry, and herbs -- a very Barolo-ish character. But in the mouth this is clearly Burgundy, no Nebbiolo I've yet tasted has this sort of textural sophistication with tannins that are both rich and velvety and airy at the same time. This has that wonderful savory/umami character that comes from age and that is quite different from the meaty/brett character I get in a lot of Syrah. Lovely.

Spectaculair wine. Chardonnay doesn't get much better then this. This wine is absolutely read to drink but Will keep for a couple of years for sure.
Powefull, Butter, Granny Smith, a hint of smokiness, some honeynotes and a bit of oak. Fresh minerality in the long finish.

White Burgundy (@Private location): Glass: Riedel Vinum Syrah
Double decanted
Clear, medium lemon golden color. Clean, fully developed medium- intense nose with some limestone, citrus fruits, hints of oak and butter.
Dry, medium acidity, full bodied, medium intense flavors with lots of salt, limestone and hints of oak in the long finish.
Beautiful Burgundy at its peak where it will stay for the next 5+ years.
