Description :

Citrus peel and an almost metallic oyster shell minerality on the nose. Then richer and sweeter in the mouth than the nose would suggest, with strong acidity contributing an impression of power. This tightly coiled wine finishes with a whiplash of citrus and mineral flavors.

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

Robert Parker : 91-93 points
"The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d’Or has a very precise, mineral-driven bouquet with wet limestone and lime-flower scents that are almost Puligny in style. The palate is well balanced with expressive citrus fruit intermingling with peach and nectarine. It is an undeniably pretty Meursault in the making, one that I suspect will be very seductive." (2014)
