  • CENA BORGOGNA GATTO NERO (RISTORANTE GATTO NERO TORINO): Degustato alla cieca. Rispetto al Clos des Mouches 99, è quasi muto al naso e timidissimo, tutto è sussurrato.
    L' austerità contenuta e aristocratica del Genevrières è amplificata dall' annata fresca, e regala un profilo finissimo in cui i fiori bianchi e la mineralità danzano in punta di piedi. Poca è l' impronta del legno che invade le annate più generose di Comte Lafon e il vino scorre elegantissimo e quasi soffuso, vestito di un candore angelico.
    Consiglio di attendere ancora qualche anno o di caraffare molte ore in anticipo per liberare gli aromi ancora pigri e nascosti.

  • The wines of of Comtes Lafon, with James Handford MW (Handford Wines, London): 2001 , much like 2007, proved to be an excellent white wine vintage.
    Shows some colour which makes the correct opening salvo for the rich wine , from nose to palate, that follows. A lot of fruit here, lush, mineral and very balanced. Complex and with a good 2 minute finish. We are talking proper meursault here! 94+

    Genevrieres is proving to be one of or favourite terroirs. We would suggest the wines of Bouchard which with along with les perrieres are our greatest find in the appellation vs price.

  • Somewhat muted/closed on the nose, but very expansive/explosive in the mouth. Marvelous wine, just wish it was easier to find Lafon wines. One of my favorite Mersaults to date...at the same time, I opened this too early. This will be some wine in 5 years or so.

    Night 2, this is gaining considerable weight on the palate and smoothing out. Still not yielding a ton on the nose, some citrus, crushed stone. Very solid effort.
