Description :

This is also aromatically admirably pure and a touch riper as well with spice, brioche and white peach aromas preceding round, precise and detailed medium-bodied flavors that display a subtle trace of backend minerality on the impressively long finish. This is a very solid effort and a fine vintage for this wine.

Robert Parker’s Review :

"Like his neighbor Jean-Marc Roulot, Benoit Ente in Puligny-Montrachet, and a few others, Dominique Lafon obtained authorization to begin picking several days ahead of the official ban de vendange. He set his crew to work over the weekend, and was finished already on the 20th of September.

The Perrieres, picked first, reached 13.8% alcohol, but all of the other wines weighed in at lower levels. Lafon insisted – and his wines testified – that the Chardonnay grapes were botrytis free, and he characterized the lees as excellent in quality and practiced “less settling than I did in the past.” That restraint – along with bright acids and pronounced minerality – makes for a richness that often expresses itself other than in creaminess.

As these wines evolved, Lafon became increasingly enthusiastic about them, and I found them much more expressive on the eve of bottling than they had been in late 2007. Incidentally, the sickly vines in Lafon’s Desiree vineyard that have given so much bottled pleasure over the years gave their last in the beautifully refined, bittersweet, and for the vintage unusually delicate and creamy 2005. “It tastes as though the vines knew they were going to be pulled out,” was Lafon’s valediction.

Notes de dégustation

The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Bouchère has a little more complexity on the nose compared to the Desirée: nectarine and even a touch of passion fruit, very refined with hints of yellow flowers. The palate is crisp and fresh, more saline than the Desirée, and with more energy and depth towards the finish. It just flows across the mouth with its harmony and poise. Enjoy this over the next 10-15 years, possibly longer.
