2011 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Montrachet Grand Cru - Single Wooden Box- 750ml
Burghound - 96 points
Despite a notably ripe aromatic profile that also flirts with the exotic, the nose maintains a sense of elegance with intensely spicy scents of apricot, white peach, floral and citrus hints that are trimmed in toasty oak. There is excellent richness but also fine detail to the focused, powerful and tautly muscular flavors that possess terrific intensity on the explosive and hugely long finish. While a big wine by most standards, this is not really a big Lafon Montrachet and it essentially remains a wine of finesse and refinement. *Don't Miss!* (6/2013)
Int'l Wine Cellar - 95 points
Medium yellow. Oily aromas and flavors of lemon, iodine and vanillin oak, plus a whiff of butter. Large-scaled, glyceral-rich and powerful, but with uncanny smoothness to the thick, deep middle palate. Still a bit youthfully bound-up (duh!) but round and sweet from the outset. The wine's strong acidity becomes apparent on the very long, fresh back end. Great potential here. (9/2013)
