When it comes to Meursault, Lafon has few peers.
You'd have to look towards Coche and Roulot. In recent vintages, it's become clear that Lafon is at the top of his game.
Lafon's 2017s drive home just how good the winemaking here is. The 2017s at Lafon are equal to his stunning 2014s.
It's well known that Lafon's village bottlings transcend the category by a wide margin, and the 2017 Clos de la Baronne dramatizes this. Clos de la Baronne is a 2.7ha monopole which includes 40-year-old vines.
The 2017 Clos de la Baronne is stunning. It combines intensity with a precision and verve that's thrilling. The 2017 has a lovely silken texture that's expertly woven into a high-toned profile and a punchy minerality.
This is a bottle that shows Lafon at the height of his powers. The scale, the way it hits the senses from so many angles, and the sheer enjoyment that it offers is something truly noteworthy.
