Domaines des Comtes Lafon Desiree 2001
Lafon’s got it right, his 2001 Meursault Desiree is awesome. Buttered pears and minerals are found in its nose. A wine of superb breadth, this seamless, medium-bodied offering coats the palate with ripe apples, spiced pears, and honeyed minerals. It is pure, powerful, and reveals a lengthy, flavorful finish. Dominique Lafon is on fire, in a zone, on top of his game. He’s never made better wines, and he improves with each passing vintage.
