Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, May 2018

    Tasted blind, Burgfest May 2018: In a strong line-up of Montrachets, this was my wine of the week at Burgfest. The nose had a heady intensity of fabulous fruit that played with a savoury iodine lift. Explosive concentration on the palate makes it already hugely appealing, although from the density and complexity of its layers, there is no doubt this has a long, majestic life ahead of it. This was electrifying.

Producer

Château Lafon

Dominique Lafon took over the management of the estate from his father, René, in 1987. Much of the estate was managed with sharecroppers which he has gradually removed and now the entire 13.8 hectare estate is solely managed by Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Their cellars are the deepest in Burgundy.Managed using biodynamic principles, the wines are barrel fermented and late bottled (nearly two years post-vintage) producing wines that are balanced yet extremeley deep and complex.

Region

Le Montrachet

Le Montrachet is the most famous white Burgundy Grand Cru coming from a single 8 hectare vineyard which overlaps into the communes of Puligny and Chassagne. Even as far back as the 18th century the wines of Le Montrachet had to be reserved a year in advance - a distant precursor to the en primeur system. The south east facing vineyards give the vines maximum exposure to the sun which combined with the limestone soil produces epic results.
