  • Tasted alongside 93 from same producer (see note) I would give the nod to this one on points. Looked more mature than the 93 and I would suspect given another 4 or 5 years I think it would be the reverse. There is a golden toasty hazelnut whirl character on the nose and the palate is full and rich but restrained. The wine has lightness which makes it easy to drink. Quite a voluble wine and excellent quality for a village of this age.

Vintage Tastings

    (Comtes Lafon Meursault) The second white we got a clue – ‘same wine, different vintage. It was a 1992 Comtes Lafon Meursault Genevrieres, a nice pair with the ’02. The nose was sweet and buttery, full of tropical mango and kinky corn with a drop of heavy cream. The palate was rich, round and tangy with golden raisin and sunned fruit flavors. The acidity was still solid even though the wine was fatty and a bit over-ripe as ’92 whites are prone to be. This was still about as tasty a 1992 as I have had in a while, and while the sun is slowly setting on this vintage, there was still goodness in a gamy, semi-sweet way. Secondary flavors of banana peel (from the inside out) and tangerine joined the party. The ’92 kept growing on me, and it was a bottle that came directly from Lafon’s cellars on release, in fact
