Description
 
Comte Lafon's cellars are deep beneath the ground, believed to be some of the deepest and coolest in Burgundy. Here, Dominique nurtures the golden produce of his 32 acres of land in the Meursault, Montrachet, Monthélie and Volnay appellations. The wines reach levels of quality rarely attained and certainly not surpassed by other growers in Burgundy or, indeed, the world. They are the result of intense arduous work in the vineyard (where strict organic and biodynamic methods are set in place) and Dominique’s expert eye in the cellars.

The 2011 Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d’Or has similar clay to Porusots that lends them similar weight. It has a complex nose of lime flower, quince and hazelnut that gains intensity in the glass. The palate is actually quite similar to the Porusots on the entry, but for me, the finish shows superior tension and poise. This is one of Dominique’s finest. Drink 2014-2028. Wine Advocate 94
