Hitting The Bull's-Eye:
2018 Lafon Meursault Clos de la Baronne

Posted by Ian McFadden

When it comes to riper vintages, Lafon's wines are often amazing.

Lafon's 2018s are yet another reminder of this. 

The domaine has long sat at the pinnacle of white Burgundy, and that makes the fact that they are currently producing some of their greatest wines all the more extraordinary.

It's well known that Lafon's village bottlings transcend the category by a wide margin, and the 2018 Clos de la Baronne dramatizes this. Clos de la Baronne is a 2.7ha monopole that includes 40-year-old vines.

The 2018 Clos de la Baronne is stunning. It combines intensity and power with precision and lift. The 2018 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.
