Dominique Lafon Bourgogne Blanc French White Burgundy Wine 750 mL

$34.99

"There is a touch of resin to the otherwise nicely complex nose of green apple, rosemary oil and floral hints. I like the vibrancy of the attractively well-detailed flavors that terminate in a mildly austere, clean and dry finish that offers reasonably good depth and length. This is a competent Bourgogne that should benefit from a year or two of bottle age." -Allen Meadows (Burghound)

Description

"From 2008 Dominique Lafon decided to make a few wines under his own label, separate from the family domaine (Domaine des Comtes Lafon). Though this new company has the official status of a negociant, almost all the wines are in fact domaine bottlings from vineyards which Dominique either owns or has the contract to farm. The wines are now vinified, matured and bottled in cellars in Meursault, formerly belonging to Domaine René Manuel. "The whites begin with Bourgogne Blanc (from 2010), village Meursault from La Petite Montagne which formerly went into the Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault blend, a single vineyard Meursault les Narvaux (from 2010) and a small premier cru holding of Puligny-Montrachet, Champgain. Some 2008 Viré-Clessé has been replaced from 2009 by a cuvée of St-Véran. The reds are a village Volnay and premier cru Les Lurets. "There is a touch of resin to the otherwise nicely complex nose of green apple, rosemary oil and floral hints. I like the vibrancy of the attractively well-detailed flavors that terminate in a mildly austere, clean and dry finish that offers reasonably good depth and length. This is a competent Bourgogne that should benefit from a year or two of bottle age." -Allen Meadows (Burghound)
