Description :

A subtle touch of wood frames the fresh, stony, airy and layered white fruit and acacia blossom nose that merges into the textured, rich and delicious flavors that possess excellent vibrancy and punch on the ripe, pure and driving finish. This too should reward short-term patience and is terrific for what it is.

Robert Parker’s Review :

"Like his neighbor Jean-Marc Roulot, Benoit Ente in Puligny, 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

Stephen Tanzer : 90 points
" Bright, light yellow. Tangy yellow stone fruit aromas convey an impression of lively acidity. Large-scaled, rich and thick, in a distinctly virile style, with penetrating acidity giving shape and verve to the flavors of apricot and smoke. "Always our strongest wine in acidity," noted Caroline Gon, adding that this wine always has the same aromas and technical analysis and thus transcends its vintage in 2015. Has the body to support its wood element finishes thick, bright and palate-staining. (But the 2014 release is sappier and more saline, offering an exhilarating balance of acidity and minerality; on my retaste of this wine in September, I rated it 91+.)
