    (Lafon Meursault Perrieres) Augie slipped me a 1996 Lafon Meursault Perrieres on the way back from the war room. It was classic, round, rich and pretty full of white, delicately sweet fruit, also possessing great, smoky flavors. There was great balance, and while it was a bit softer and more mature than I expected, there was still hidden acidity, woven beautifully into the wine’s elegant style.

    (Lafon Meursault Perrieres) The second white had a wider nose but was not as forward, more waxy, with nice butter, nut and light nutmeg. The classic citrus came out. The wine had a nice body, shier and less developed though, still with a bit of baby fat to it. The palate was very oily with more slate on its finish. 'Coconut,' someone observed, and Rudy observed some 'botrytis.' The acids really came out with time in this

    (Lafon Meursault 'Perrieres,') ,' which is technically not Grand Cru, although many feel that 'Perrieres' is a vineyard in Burgundy that delivers Grand Cru quality. It was an honorary ambassador of sorts and held up its part of the bargain with a fabulous nose full of that 1996 acidity, light citrus and wax, nice butter, candy apple, minerals and steel. Eric found it 'a little alcoholic' but still enjoyed it; its palate was deliciously toasty, racy, pure and tasty, and there was no doubt that it belonged in this flight afterwards
