2019 Meursault Clos de la Barre, Comtes Lafon

2019 Meursault Clos de la Barre, Comtes Lafon

Clos de la Barre is a 2.1 vineyard just behind the domaine which is a monopole of Lafon. Even in warm years, the fruit retains its acidity well, and in 2019, the wine has deliciously appealing bitter freshness married with ripe apricot fruit. A hint of danish pastry makes it typically Meursault.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Meursault Clos-de-la-Barre has a taut nose like the Désirée. Perfumed white flower scents intermingle with yellow plum and citrus peel – very pretty. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and there is plenty of energy here. A twist of sour lemon lends tension toward the finish, and a touch of ginger pops up on the aftertaste. Excellent.
