TASTING NOTES

"Pale yellow. Dynamic aromas of nectarine and iodiney minerality. Dense and thick but weightless, conveying great finesse of grain to its pungent stone fruit, ginger and mineral flavors. Really bulletproof texture here! Classically dry yet with a compelling suggestion of fruit sweetness. Just on the edge of reduction, this wine is most impressive today on its wonderfully palate-staining spicy, iodiney finish." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Tasted blind, Lafon's 2015 Montrachet Grand Cru displays incredible potential, unfurling in the glass with a classy bouquet of buttered Meyer lemons, toasted nuts, dried white flowers and mandarin oil. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, richly textural but tangy, with a deep, tight-knit core, excellent concentration and a long, pure finish. An hour later, this Montrachet was still filling out, acquiring more dimension along with subtly honeyed aromatic top notes, so I suspect my score will prove conservative."
