Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Charmes 2010
RP95: The 2010 Meursault Charmes has found a level of focus over the last year that it didn’t have from barrel. The characteristic Charmes richness is there, but over time, the wine’s mineral elements have taken on additional prominence. Layers of deep, resonant fruit crescendo to the textured, multi-dimensional finish. This is a great showing from Comtes Lafon.
BH94: *Outstanding* A discreet but not invisible touch of wood sets off a highly layered and ever-so-slightly exotic nose of pear, citrus, rose petal and equally discreet spice notes. There is a subtle minerality to the energetic, delineated and concentrated flavors that possess superb depth and even better length on the explosive, balanced and bone dry finish. This magnificent effort should amply reward a decade or more of cellar time. --Allen Meadows
