2005 Comtes Lafon Montrachet Grand Cru - Single Wooden Box - 750ml
Allen Meadows Burghound - 97 Points
Here the incredibly fresh and vibrant yet discreet nose reveals even more aromatic breadth that is brimming with spice, toast, honeysuckle and acacia blossom, all of which introduces broad-shouldered yet tangy full-bodied, notably ripe and utterly classy and sophisticated flavors of striking depth and length. What is perhaps most impressive though is that such a big wine retains such solid delineation that continues on to a palate staining, wonderfully intense finish. In short, this is just flat out brilliant. (7/2007)
Jancis Robinson - 19.5/20 Points
This was the wine Dominique teased me I might not have time for in view of the train I had to catch after tasting here. Most amusing. I'm so glad I managed to taste it. Broad and yet very very exciting and nervy - just bursting with wild flowers and life. A great bouquet already plus crystalline precision in terms of structure. So full of life it seems to be running rings round the taster. Truly magnificent, and very long. (8/2007)
