Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Meursault Clos de la Barre 2008

Lafon Meursault Barre 2008 #1

Lemon yellow and star bright.  It opens spiced and grinning, a patisserie-like overlay of baking aromas, yeast and vanilla flowers.  More declamatory underneath, its inferences both oceanic and geologic, iodine sea air and friable stone.  Enveloping peach, tangerine and citrus confit; concentrated yet articulate.  Shades of grilled nut.  Definitive and dry at the end; it stains the palate with white iris perfume and a nuanced silex minerality.  A quivering Clos de la Barre.  Now – 2020.
