Description :

Rich aromas of wet stone, minerals, vanilla and hazelnut. Large-scaled but tight, with this wine's typical firm acidity leavening its textural richness. This expands in the mouth like a top bottling of Perrieres. Perhaps less refined than the Genevrieres but bigger and more powerful 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

Robert Parker : 92-94 points
"The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes has a straight down the line walnut- scented bouquet tinged with smoke and flint – voluminous like so many Meursault Charmes this year. There is very good intensity here. The palate is showing the new wood a little more than other premier crus from Lafon, but there is fine depth with veins of orange peel and tangerine, gradually building toward a generous walnut tinged finish. This is a very impressive Meursault that will surely come into its own after bottling." (2014)
