Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Monthélie Les Duresses 1er Cru 2008

Lafon Monthelie Duresses 2008 #1

Lambent ruby.  A raspberry – cacao reduction at first.  Suave, rather swollen mid-palate texture and flavor to buffer the vintage’s prominent acidity.  Then airy and perfumed with savor, crystalline in its intimations of pomegranate and violet.  Ripe, well-heeled tannin.  Stylish: it’s a Monthélie with a little décolletage.  I would enjoy this sooner rather than later to appreciate the fruit and the Lafon vinification.  Now – 2020.
