2018 Domaine des Comtes Lafon 'Clos de La Barre' Meursault 1.5L
The terroir of Clos de la Barre produces rich, mineral wines, with pronounced citrus aromas and marked acidity.
Decanter - "Dominique Lafon's home vineyard is always one of the most complete expressions of Meursault and the 2018 is no exception. Picked in three stages according to the age of the vines between August 26th and September 3rd, this is focused, weighty and very lightly wooded, with lovely harmony, depth and complexity and a racy, palate-cleansing finish."
Vinous - "The 2018 Meursault Clos-de-la-Barre is a clear step up from the Désirée, showing much more delineation and more Meursault-like in character, touches of hazelnut infusing the red apple and light peeled peach skin aromas. The oak here seems to be better integrated. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and touches of orange peel and apricot. Fresh and focused, culminating in a persistent spicy finish. Excellent. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Meursault Clos de la Barre wafts from the glass with scents of waxy citrus rind, fresh pear, mandarin oil and warm pastry, followed by a medium to full-bodied, attractively deep and complete palate. This is the raciest, most structured and most serious of the domaine's communal-level bottlings, and it will be well worth seeking out. Barrel Sample: 90-92"
