"Maybe the dark horse of Dominique Lafon’s wines this vintage"
2018 Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Les Porusots

Posted by Ian McFadden

Lafon's 2018s are simply jaw-dropping.

This doesn't comes as any surprise. For starters, Lafon has been at the top of his game for the past handful of vintages.

Also, when it comes to riper vintages, Lafon's wines are often amazing. Even with high expectations, the 2018s are seriously impressive. The wines have incredible drive and precision along with plenty of punch.

As Neal Martin's note makes clear, the 1er Cru Porusots is a high point and one of the best examles of the wine that we've tasted. 

The 1er Cru Porusots is an east-facing vineyard with deep clay soils. The site produces lavish, layered, and deeply structured wines. Lafon endows this site with a serious muscularity. 

What sets the 2018 Porusots apart is its incredible refinement. There's beautiful verve and structure, along with a profound textural complexity. The combination makes for an absolutely thilling bottle of white Burgundy. 

Along with Roulot and Coche-Dury, Lafon is considered the gold standard for Meursault. The 2018 Porusots makes clear why Lafon is currently one of the most exciting domaines in Burgundy.
