2009 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Montrachet Grand Cru
Tasted out of the barrel at the Domaine. The ’09 Montrachet has a very well-defined bouquet, a little taciturn at first, taking some coaxing after the more generous Meursault Perrieres, developing notes of crushed stone, dried lemon peel, almond and smoked walnut. The palate has a lovely, very pretty white peach-flavored entry with subtle fresh apricot and orange zest coming in later. Very elegant and beautifully poised on the feminine finish. Long and very attractive.
96 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2009 Montrachet is just as glorious in a bottle as it was in a barrel. Layers of rich, expressive fruit caress the palate in this packed, deep wine. There is considerable power here, but the wine needs time in the bottle to settle down a bit.
We ship packages Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
