2007 Comtes Lafon Meursault Clos de la Barre - 750ml
Wine With Bok - 9.25/10 Stars
One of the larger plot in Meursault at 2.12 ha, and thus the price is relatively reasonable. This plot is located right behind Comtes Lafon’s family main living quarters, thus you can be assured they tender the vines carefully! It may not be a flagship bottle of Comtes Lafon, though it drinks spectacularly well. Coming from a great vintage, I was stunned by the quality, quintessential of Comtes Lafon quality. Bouquet of slight buttery toast, but mainly subdued and shy. Content is very steady, it doesn’t create big nor loud appeal, just let the wines speak for itself; very calm, cool and submissive. Supreme balance with mainly white fruits with a touch of lemon taste, at later stage, the wine also oozed out a touch of mango notes. Really cannot go wrong with Comtes Lafon, stunning! (5/2022)
Vinous - 91 Points
Pale color. Discreet aromas of soft citrus fruits and powdered stone. Juicy and tightly wound, with a captivating floral perfume in the mouth. For a wine with a light touch, this finishes with impressive thrust, not to mention aromatic persistence. Lafon calls this his favorite Clos de la Barre in a long time, noting that he also likes the 2000 very much. (9/2009)
Allen Meadows Burghound - 91 Points
This is aromatically pure and ripe with beautifully fresh if restrained aromas of spice, brioche, apricot and white peach preceding round, precise and detailed medium-bodied flavors that display a subtle trace of backend minerality on the impressively long finish where the barest hint of warmth can be detected. This remains remarkably young yet it is actually quite approachable and overall, this is an exceptionally fine and one of the more structured vintages of recent memory for Clos de la Barre. In a word, terrific. (4/2013)
