Meursault, Côte De Beaune

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.

Fruity and floral. Sulfur whiff.Lots of life. Melon, lemon, I’m guessing white burg. Steeliness of puligny. It’s PYCM. Makes total sense. Lovely — 10 days ago

Monthly WTF wine group tasting. This month’s theme was chardonnay from any region or vintage. Nice eclectic bunch! All wines tasted blind.

I really enjoyed this. Next to the Chablis it was poured next to, this was much more soft. It also continually evolved in the glass. More reductive/matchstick notes here than the Chablis, as well as a warm profile. It revealed some baking spice notes from the oak, lemon meringue, ripe stone fruits and the profile was almost creamy (in a good way). This would be a nice bottle to bridge people from high end Cali chard to burgundy.

Silky mouthfeel and very elegant but was expecting a bit more focus. Almost too balanced if that is a thing... — 10 days ago
