2007 Comtes Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes - 750ml
Allen Meadows Burghound - 95 Points
This has evolved beautifully since my last review with its ultra-pure aromas of peach, apricot, pear and spiced white peach leading to ripe, concentrated and superbly precise flavors that display plenty of mid-palate fat and ample minerality that this part of Charmes always seems to impart to the wines and overall, this is a stunningly harmonious wine of finesse that delivers breathtaking length. This may not be Lafon's best Charmes ever but it is a seriously, seriously impressive effort that is no where near ready. (7/2007)
Stephen Tanzer - 95 Points
Rich aromas of wet stone, minerals, vanilla and hazelnut. Large-scaled but tight, with this wine's typical firm acidity leavening its textural richness. This expands in the mouth like a top bottling of Perrieres. Perhaps less refined than the Genevrieres but bigger and more powerful wine. The mounting, expanding finish is almost painful. (9/2008)
