Last week, a horizontal tasting event of premier cru wines from Domaine des Comtes Lafon 2017 was held in our Taiwan branch and was a splendid success! Domaine des Comtes Lafon has a long history dating back to the 1860s, and they own some of the best vineyards in Meursault and Volnay. Their vineyards are cultivated under biodynamic principles with no use of herbicides or other chemicals; and gained its glorious reputation for its Meursault wines under the current owner, DominiqueLafon - well-known for their astonishing depth and complexity but remain at accessible prices.
The tasting consisted of 5 bottles of Meursault 1er Cru 2017 including Bouchères, Genevrières, Perrières, Porusots and Charmes in which the Meursault-Charmes and Meursault-Perrieres performed extremely well! We are pleased to share with you today our detailed tasting notes from the event and also our availability of each in Hong Kong below; and last but not least, we also have some older bottles from Domaine des Comtes Lafon arriving in a few weeks' time for your selection! Only very limited quantities available -
Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault-Bouchères 1er Cru 2017 Sexy nose of tangerine, almond, caramel with lively palate of citrus acidity and lemon zest, white stone flavors. A mineral-driven example, with a memorable and long, citrus peel finish. A great beginning of the tasting!
HK$2,050 per bottle
3 bottles immediately available from stock Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault-Genevrières 1er Cru 2017 Musky aroma of green pepper, spices and lime, the Genevrières stood distinctly with Boucheres with an impressive gun flint and smokiness in palate which added the complexity to the wine. Lovely fruitiness of apple, citrus and lime. The finish is hit by a long and elegant acidic touch.
HK$2,390 per bottle
1 bottle immediately available from stock Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault-Porusots 1er Cru 2017 Compared with Boucheres and Genevrières, the Porusots has a more reserved nose of ginger and citrus. It is followed with lemon oil, white peach and pomegranate in the palate with a persistent finish of orange peel. Patience is required and will take at least 5 years to evolve.
No availability at the moment Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru 2017 Beautiful nose of roasted nuts, almond, yellow plum and spices, the Meursault-Charmes has superb balance and rounded texture with tangerine oil, wet stone, white pepper, and lovely citrus acidity. It’s a complete and very high quality Meursault, and is already showing all its positive sides but has great potential to age.
HK$2,250 per bottle
9 bottles immediately available from stock Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault-Perrières 1er Cru 2017 Electric attack of pastry, wet stone, roasted hazelnuts on the nose, the Meursault-Perrières 1er Cru 2017 is distinctively in another league with its superb complexity and structure. It’s the most complex wine compared with the other Meursault 1er Cru today, dense and all the elements are well integrated. In the palate we are spoiled from its oily texture of citrus, white peach, apple tart and roasted walnut. Persistent finish and an absolute joy to explore its energy and beautiful side.
HK$3,650 per bottle
