HDH auction tasting at Tru; 5/15/2015-5/16/2015 (Chicago, IL): Very light colour, which is a great sign for Lafon. The palate is very rich and sweet, with a very sappy quality. Dense ripe fruit, but it's missing the acidic cut that I've grown accustomed to in my chardonnay. Very voluptous and fleshy, as is the house style (which isn't quite mine).
An exceptional Villages wine. Dark color might give some people cause for concern, but no fear here. Deeply floral with ripe stone fruit, roasted hazelnut and perhaps a subtle hint of botrytis (?). Started very weighty and dense, then seemed to pick up more energy as I kept revisiting this wine over ~2 hours.
Un grand seigneur en blanc. Première rencontre avec le domaine des Comtes Lafon et toute une. Au nez, ce 2001 possède des notes de citron confit, voir d'amandes. En bouche, c'est long, gras avec des tonalités de melon, de citron confit. Un meursault de haut niveau. 94 sur 100.
