2018 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Desiree #158449393
Based on 2 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 89-91 points Wine Advocate "A ripe bouquet of honeyed peaches, pears, beeswax, toasted almonds and white flowers introduces the 2018 Meursault Desiree, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping wine that's ripe, textural and sumptuous, with succulent acids and a long finish. (WK)" 90 points Vinous "...has an intense bouquet of dried honey and touches of white peach and walnut. I would have liked a little more delineation but it has an engaging purity. The palate is balanced with a concentrated opening and rounded in the mouth, offering a touch of spice and tropical tones toward the voluminous finish. (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.
