Estate Notes

Domaine des Comtes Lafon is a legend of Meursault and Burgundy, with some of thefinest cellars in the entire region. Lafon took over the estate in the early 1980s, and began reclaiming the majority of his vineyards (which were leased out). All of his vineyards are now firmly under his control and the quality of the fruit and each micro-terroir really shines through each stunning wine.

Each bottle of this powerful, creamy, tropical Montrachet 2006 comes in its very own wooden presentation box.



"Flowers, peach, and nut oils are dramatically front and center in the Lafon 2006 Montrachet as well. Here is the one overtly creamy wine in this collection, yet it doesn’t in the least lack for ripe citrus juiciness. This lacks the sense of dynamic felt in the Perrieres, but is somehow both statuesque and at the same time ethereal and cloud-like. Suggestions of minerality here have near-sweetness, like fresh scallops or a lobster shell reduction. A virtually indelible finish suggests distilled floral essences, nut oils, ginger, and crustacean. Too bad there are a mere four barrels of this stunning elixir. The penetration of herbal distillates and citrus oil; seductively sweet gardenia florality; bittersweet nuttiness; and an astonishing combination of super-ripeness and verve.."

"A touch of wood toast frames discreet and almost reticent mildly exotic notes of anise, peach, pear, citrus, floral, mango and honeysuckle that blend seamlessly into textured, sweet, powerful, robust and almost painfully intense full-bodied flavors that possess a textured mouth feel yet retain excellent precision and cut as well. This is a big Montrachet, even by the imposing standards that Montrachet typically brings to bear and one that should age effortlessly for years to come." Burghound
