Marie-Noelle Ledru

Grand Cru Brut Champagne Blend

My then girlfriend and now wife loves this producer. Introduced by AC years ago, I liked the wines back then, but never really loved them. But as with my partner, the sentiment has changed over the years and I'm now left wishing I got more back then. Marie-Noelle Ledru's wines are so scarce today since she has retired from commercial production (although, I hear it's still possible to get them through her inner circle connections). Interestingly enough, my two oldest notes on this cuvee seem to indicate that I found it too broad. How wrong was I?! The key is to decant, which brings out incredible energy and delineation in the wine. Our closing wine for 2019 couldn't be any better - a complex nose of brioche, marzipan, white florals, apples, pears, lemons, and river stones, with hints of cherries and an interesting white pepper note. The palate's painfully precise, textured, and juicy. I just love how the fruit fills out the mid-palate, broadens up a little with some stone fruit notes and creaminess, then finishes with searing acidity and intense chalkiness. Lesson learnt here: always trust the wife. Happy New Year, ya'll! — 10 months ago

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru Chardonnay 2016

Very charming indeed 😎🤦🏻‍♂️ Dense and rich, yet surprising lithe. A real class act here. I've got nothing but good things to say about Lafon's recent vintages and this 16' was firing on all cylinders from the get-go.

The nose was gorgeous - pears and apples with strong floral and rich malo elements, all set on a underlying tone of well-integrated reduction. On the palate, the wine was so smooth (no hardness at all!) and complex. The wife described it as being very balanced and complete. I loved the texture. Deceivingly light when first opened (to the point that AC thought it might have been a Chablis), but the texture kept buidling as the night progressed. Air also revealed the more citrusy side of this wine, lovely spice, and a light stoniness. The finish was long, driven by fruit and acidity. Superb really and I would definitely like to revisit this in a good couple of years.

NB: Apparently, no new oak was used in this 16' Charmes.
