A Marvelous Combination - 2013 Comtes Lafon Meursault Magnums

2013 Comtes Lafon Meursault Magnums

"The wine is always one of the most elegant renditions of Meursault villages produced and in the inherently elegant vintage of 2013, this is a marvelous combination."
-John Gilman

Every time that we offer Lafon Meursault Magnums, they quickly disappear. Word is definitely out: this is one of the great overachieving villages-level White Burgundies. And, as Gilman notes, one of the most stunningly elegant.

Along with Coche and Roulot, Lafon is Meursault's long-standing benchmark. As good as the wines have been, Lafon has been on an absolute tear lately. The wines have laser-cut minerality and impeccable detail.

Lafon's 2013s clearly represent a high-water mark. They possess staggering finesse, purity and clarity. It's amazing the amount of complexity that the wine manages to pack into its lithe and precise structure.

Lafon's 2013 Meursault is a top example of the 2013 White Burgundy vintage. It boasts the vintage's brilliant focus and ultra-refined length. As I mentioned earlier, this is one of the offers that's consistently here today and gone tomorrow. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
