Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Porusots is also very lively and nicely defined this year, displaying scents of pear, lemon oil, crisp green apple, white flowers and a subtle touch of oak vanillin. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, chalky and incisive, with terrific tension for the vintage, concluding with a mouthwatering finish. (WK)" 95 points Vinous "Exceptional clarity and delineation on the nose, the crushed rock and white flower scents wafting from the glass. The palate is well defined and sports a very subtle reduction. Powerful and intense with plenty of spice, ginger and white pepper enhancing the finish. Superb. (NM)"
About Domaine des Comtes Lafon
When Dominique took over in 1984, the vineyard holdings were spread across Meursault, Volnay, Monthélie, and Puligny-Montrachet, with most under contract. But once those agreements expired, this tour de force got to work. He took complete control back of the vineyards, implemented organic and biodynamic practices, and built a respected reputation for honoring the terroir of each vineyard. Best known for his whites, these wines range from round and seductive to robust and serious, to a signature finesse in his Montrachet Grand Cru.
Ever since Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate declared, “Dominique Lafon is on fire, in a zone, on top of his game. He’s never made better wines, and he improves with each passing vintage,” collectors worldwide have been jumping at the opportunity to acquire these prized bottlings.
