Naming some of the most popular names in Meursault isn't difficult - Coche Dury, Arnaud Ente, Roulot...... These are undeniably marvellous domaines, with very high quality productions across the board but also come with high price tags. If you are searching for some decent wines from Meursault with a more approachable price tag, Domaine des Comtes Lafon is one of the best names to follow. They own some decent terroirs in Meursault and produce Meursaults of astonishing depth and complexity but which still remains at friendly prices nowadays given the quality it offers.
The current owner Dominique Lafon started managing the Domaine in 1985. Over the past 35 years, he has maintained the glorious reputation of the Domaine and has been making outstanding Meursaults from different sites. The Domaine produces many outstanding Meursaults from Perrieres, Charmes, Genevrieres, Clos de la Barre and Désirée; and today, we are proud to offer their Meursault Désirée from 2015!

Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Désirée 2015 HK$1,195 per bottle Special Offer – HK$1,150 per bottle 12 bottles available, ETA 2 weeks 90-91pts Stephen Tanzer Bright yellow. Peach and a note of menthol reduction on the nose. Juicier and suaver than the basic village offering; less round and fat but more delineated and vibrant. A very good performance for such young vines. Finishes dusty, broad and persistent, with very good lift. 89-92pts Allen Meadows The lemony essence of liqueur-like pear and apple is trimmed in wood, citrus and a pretty floral wisp. The mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is a study in contrasts as there is a certain coolness yet at the same time, a succulence to the round and utterly delicious flavors that possess just a touch better depth and length. This dry and refreshing effort should drink well young too. Subject to final confirmation. ETA 2 weeks. Delivery is free-of-charge for single purchases above HK$3,000 or 6 bottles (or accumulated amount at time of delivery); otherwise, a standard delivery fee of HK$80 applies.
