  • Burgundy & Birds (il Buco): Note by Tim Farrell of BWe

    The wine, which was quite young with lots of primary yellow fruit flavors, also exhibited a touch of the much mentioned 2004 "green-ness" that, while often overbearing and disruptive in the vintage's reds, lends a lean edge and touch of spice to the mix. Lovely with duck rillettes.

    Tasted alongside a 1989 Lafon Meursault which was just better in every way, see note

  • Drank the 2004 Desire and Clos du Barre side by side. Light yellow color, some buttered popcorn on the nose along with hints citrus. Light weight compared to the Clos du Barre, which was richer, fuller, more complex, more energy and longer finish. Nice but a little simple.

  • Quite yellow-gold, a bit alarming, but not obviously oxidised (like too much of Lafon). Quite fat, caramel, tough of citrus & minerality but this is pretty rustic and rather blowsy. Not a great Meursault, needs drinking now and certainly nowhere near worth the price tag.

  • Moving towards tropical flavors, but still ok. Riper than I would expect an o4 to be, but maybe this is why he got rid of the vineyard. 200o is holding better

  • A really good, and interesting style. Apparantly this vineyard does not exist anymore. I tried to stump mynfriend alex, but he had had the wine before. Very much in the lafon style. Rich, ripe, oily and viscous on the front and mid palate. Initially a typical lafon meursault. Gave way to a crisper, leaner back palate with lemon oil, citrus and a touch of mineral, great structure. Much life ahead.

    (Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Désirée) Lovely, elegant, citrus nose; soft entry that opens to solid lemon, mineral and creamy vanilla palate with good acidity; medium finish 90+ pts.
