TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru has a backward bouquet that takes time to unfold, only reluctantly revealing delicate white peach, yellow plum and crushed stone aromas. A bit more coy than expected. The palate is discreet for a Charmes, precise as a Swiss watch, delivering a fine bead of acidity and a smooth, slightly honeyed finish. Very fine, though I wager not the best Charmes the domaine has produced in recent years.

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

As prices for land in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or become unaffordable, many of the region's greatest names have looked south, to Mâcon or Beaujolais, to expand their holdings. At the forefront of this movement was Dominique Lafon, who bought his estate in the Mâcon in 1999, naming it Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. Dominique makes wines here with all the care and attention that has made his Meursaults some of the world’s most highly prized wines. They’re a taste of Lafon, at very reasonable prices.
