Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Désirée 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Meursault|
|Brand||Domaine des Comtes Lafon|
With the 2020 Meursault Désirée, the "young" vines here have attained their 25th year, and things are starting to get serious. Mingling notes of stone fruit and pear with hints of honeycomb, almonds and spices, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, its textural attack segueing into a layered, gourmand mid-palate, before concluding with a saline finish.
The 2020 Meursault Desiree has a well-defined bouquet with dried honey, yellow flowers and a touch of grilled walnut. It opens nicely in the glass. The palate has a slightly waxy entry, fine acidity, taut and focused with a touch of orange pith and lemon curd towards the finish. Good length. Excellent. Closure: Diam 30.
