    July 9, 2020 - Is it just the vintage that accounts for the disappointing showing of what should be a fabulous mature Meursault from a great producer? Or has Dominique Lafon changed his vinification since then to produce the wonderful wines from recent vintages? Consistent with the previous bottle it’s broad, obvious and concentrated yet lacks the precision and cut of better examples. Worse yet, it is so, so simple. Compared with the dazzling 2014 for example, the weakness is obvious.

    April 13, 2020 - It’s okay. A little fruit heavy but in almost an oily waxy way. Acids muted and finish long and hot.

    March 6, 2020 - La Paulée de New York - The Verticals (Eventi Hotel - New York NY): Walk around tasting, in 12/11/09 vertical. Perfumed with ripe stone fruit and very good density. Softer finish. Best to enjoy over the next 5 years while this remains this fresh. Somehow I haven't tasted this wine since barrel tasting in 2010!

    December 22, 2019 - A good showing, some gun powder. Slightly broader than expected for the plot but a great effort. Would drink now.

    November 20, 2019 - I was quite suprised by how advanced this was (also highlighted later side by side the 2010) - visually quite dark in colour, toffee notes, hint of coffee bean and a fat salty finish. My suspicion here is a slight premox however it didn't take away from the enjoyment and although the 2010 is the better wine the 2009 was the one I was probably keen on drinking more today. It also worked very well with the foie gras and lobster risotto dishes. If representative bottle in terms of development drink earlier rather than later.
