A beautiful nose with honey, toasted tropical fruit, and pear. The palate had a lot of weight. The honey on the palate was a nice and pleasant surprise. It is drinking so well now. This is the first comte lafon that I thoroughly enjoyed. The fruit and acidity were still there to keep for several more years. I would rate it higher if the palate was more complex. My suggestion is to consume now and enjoy it.
2012 - Lunch and Hi-Tea: Alcohol :: 13.5% Opened for 3.5hrs. Medium golden. Very pure and airy on the nose, almost Champagne like: honey, toasted nut, red apple, lemon, pear, yellow flower and huge mineral background. Equally pure on the palate with good concentration of sweet pure yellow fruits, hazelnut, refreshing minerality and a touch salinity and coffee that wrapped in a powerful package and leads to the very spicy medium length, smooth finish. Excellent in whole with good density but perhaps smaller in scale.
