Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Monthélie Chardonnay 2011

Nose has caramel dipped yellow apple, lemon peel, lemon zest, peach slice, warming butter and classroom chalk dust.

Palate has sugar dusted lemon slice, slightly oxidized yellow apple peel, fresh-fresh lemon zest, light salinity, sauteed peach and old white flowers.

Great acidity, likely opened this much too soon, expect this bottle to be a ⭐ in another 6-9Y (2027-30), albeit delicious tonight.

Decanted 4H+, more time appreciated.

Always look for the less notable Village and vineyard sites from your favorite high level producers, chances are good they're making a great, under-the-radar wines with pricing to match.

How sautéed peach. Your descriptions blow me away.

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru Chardonnay 1990

Darker gold with an old white wine nose. Notes of warm citrus, creme brulee, some butterscotch. Later these notes mellow as the wine got more air and opened up a bit. Silky in the mouth. A bit past its prime for sure, but still has some sneaky acidity and enjoyment to offer. — a month ago

Le Fruit Défendu Rosé Blend

Really love this. Just the right balance between fruit and mineral flavors. Tart, but not overwhelmingly so, slight rose on the finish, maybe? — 18 days ago

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Les Maranches Mâcon-Uchizy Chardonnay 2003

Amazing and totally unexpected! — a Chardonnay from a monster hot year, but the age has mellowed it like crazy, oxidated it gently, and it ends up tasting like it’s the softest sherry from Jerez — 7 days ago

I didn’t know that Chardonnay could taste like this.

Chateau des Quarts (Dominique Lafon & Olivier Merlin)

Clos des Quarts Monopole Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2012

Pop and pour, notes from 45 min open. Lovely, and my best bottle..also my last '12. On the nose: lemon, soft ginger, a touch of honey, some sour apple. On the palate: excellent acidity and density, mirroring the nose. Paired with baked whole branzino, stuffed with onions and herbs...yum. — 10 days ago
