2009, 2010, & 2012 Domaine des Comtes Lafon - Meursault 1er Cru Charmes - Tasting this vertical was eye opening on how a top producer can have a signature style, showcase the specific terroir, and reflect the vintage. Let me preface and say all 3 were excellent, but the 2009 was more open and inviting. It did carry a bit more weight than the others and acidity not as high. Ripe yellow apple, ripe pear, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, and a long briny finish. The 2010 was a close 2nd and I feel will be the better wine longer term. Similar notes more expressive on the nose, but tighter on the palate. Higher acidity too. Honestly it was a coin toss. 2012 was the most reductive and most closed aromatically of the group. This is not bad just not on the same level yet as the other 2. The fruit was a bit more citrus driven lime and lemon custard. Palate is not as weighty as either, but solid finish. #lapaulee #france #burgundy #meursault #meursaultcharmes #comteslafon #domainedescomteslafon @lafon .dom #chardonnay #premiercru #verticaltasting #wine #vin #vino #葡萄酒 #vinho #wein #winelover #winegeek #winetasting #wsetdiploma #winestagram #wineterroir #sommelier #winelife #wineoclock #postmorewine #lovewine #winetime #wineporn #instawine
