Impeccable balance, great depth, very focused and precise, creamy, fatiness with vivid acidity. Aromas of peach, citruses, lily, a bit of butter too. Absolutely gorgeous, and it will only get better with a further aging.

    October 3, 2021 - A Magnificent Burgundy Afternoon (San Francisco): Full yellow. Classic hazelnut along with some churned butter. Rich, round, and deep with an excellent to outstanding finish replete with earth and acidity. Fantastic texture with some wood. Succulent, great balance. Others thought this might be slightly oxidized, but I found nothing except for the positive presence of light Meursault nuttiness.

    Much broader and richer on the palate, with layers of rich fruit.
    Lovely supporting acidity, this is really top-notch.

    July 3, 2021 - Another in a long series of Lafon Meursault Perrières. Beautifully preserved and fresh; yellow mid way between straw and buttercup. When first opened there is that distinctive Lafon waft of oatmeal and lemon. Gorgeous balance, perfect acidity. Just a tiny touch of austerity that marks it out as Perrières. Disarmingly lovely now at this early mature stage. With just a bit more concentration it would be epic. Held up well over two hours and best when even cooler than usual.

    November 27, 2020 - Similar to last year, though maybe a little leaner as bright citrus fruit and mineral/saline dominated the midpalate and finish. Enjoyable but i found myself eager to shift gears to the reds

    October 24, 2020 - Beautiful. The dry cork had me concerned but not to worry, the pale color was reassuring. Nicely aromatic. Medium full, long finish. Just slightly soft as befits the vintage but plenty of juicy acidity and matière. There are no flowers in here but a generous amount of apricot and cantaloupe fruit and a touch of lemongrass and quince. Minerally. No change in the glass over hours. Still youthful. Complex and intriguing.

    April 15, 2020 - Glorious Meursault Perrières, so different from the Lafons of yesteryear although I loved them too. Very, very tight and dry cork which broke in half. Pale straw. Extraordinary elegance and stony minerality. Borderline austere and tight, young but intense, especially for the vintage. Regal and poised. Remarkable with years to go before it peaks but irresistible now.

    March 2, 2020 - Calisse que c’est bon...
    nez plutôt discret sur des aromes salins, beurré, menthol, minerals, fruits blancs et un peu de fleurs
    La bouche est puissante, grasse, fraiche... bien que imprécise, je me régale de son fruit et de son acidité
    Finale longue, suave, fruits blancs, sel de mer... je salive abondament... c’est un pur délice !
