  • Sweet mineral nose. Palate is sweet white flowers. Fruit is ripe. Acids are subdued. Slightly drying. Finish is short clean. Goes better with some food to offset some sweetness.

  • 2000 Burgundy Grand Cru Dinner (Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck): Not a great vintage, and it shows, but this was still a very solid wine. It had a pretty nose. Very Meursault, and quite Lafon-ish, if just a bit on the ripe side, with sweet notes of stone fruit wed to curls of buttery aromas, whipped-cream, white flowers and little hint of minerality. The palate shared that same sunny ripeness, with sweet notes of ripe apples, nectarines and a little honey on the forefront and sweet lemon fruit on the midpalate, all slathered with a few dollops of cream. What it had going for it though was a surprising lightness and transperancy in spite of the ripeness, with a clarity lent by decent, if not exactly zippy acidity, and a sense of cut and focus aided by a spine of minerality that ran from the attack all the way into a very long, chalky, spicy finish kissed by sweet floral hints and a little nuttiness. A big muscular wine, yet still quite well-poised, and quite nicely complex. I thought it was just tottering towards being a little awkward at its edges, with a little flush of alcohol warmth and that rather in-your-face ripeness giving a sense that this was slightly less polished and elegant than one would normally expect from a great Lafon. A touch more freshness and cut would have been welcomed too. Saying all that though, this was quite delicious and drinking well at the moment.

  • Al naso mazzetto di erbe aromatiche tipo menta piperita e salvia, minerale, ricco ed espanso, alla fine escono i fiori. Bocca piena e acida

  • Typical meursault. Some toast and still signs of oak that should integrate further with time. Big framed but elegant. Somewhat lacking in acid. Good meursault but not great, in my view...

    (Lafon Meursault Genevrieres) The 2000 Lafon Meursault Genevrieres had a touch of mildew or mold in the nose, that back alley edge to which I often refer. There was some corn, yeast and citrus behind that, and the palate was clean, but again simple. Mark concurred. There was a touch of tea-like quality and mild acidity in this disappointing 2000
