2011 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Goutte d'Or

Description

"Lafon's Goutte d'Or is a small parcel, barely 1 acre, replanted in 1991. The soil is heavy clay over stony limestone, the vineyard facing due East with a 5-15% gradient. Yields are regular and require careful monitoring since the resulting wine is impressively powerful, albeit with very ripe aromas and an almost aggressive minerality when young."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." eRobertParker.com"
