Description:

Comtes Lafon Meursault Charmes 2006
Cote de Beaune
"This is quite a bit riper though there is no overt exoticism present with aromas of peach, spiced pear and apricot that merge into exceptionally rich and relatively big flavors blessed with ample amounts of palate coating dry extract that completely buffer the firm spine of ripe acidity and intense finishing minerality. This is balanced and driving with a linear finish that slowly fans out as it lingers. Superb." Burghound, 93 pts. 07/13
3 bottles
Estimate $300-450
