Visit to Domaine des Comte Lafon with Stephane Thibodaux; 3/20/2015-3/21/2015: According to Stephane, this wine is 'what Comte Lafon dream of'. An aromatic explosion. A complex bouquet of white flowers, peaches, pear, with a touch of cinnamon. Lovely mouthfeel. Perfect, classic acid balance. Serious mid palate fruit weight and power. Sappy, persistent finish. A classic Meursault, absolute class.
Very fresh and took 2 hours to open up. Nose with some new oak, fresh citrus fruit, mazipan. Palate still pretty tight but with some nuts, slight honey and pretty sharp acidity. Very elegant Meursault, painfully young with lots of room to improve.
