I didn’t know what to expect of his Meursault wines, but MAN! this villages is crazy good!…..from two parcels: 1/3 from Aux Moulin Landin, and 2/3 from les Clous, from vines pushing up on 45 years old. A great example of precise elegance over any one element standing out, this is a gorgeously precise and complex wine balancing its sense of Meursault typical richness with a seamless sense of supportive tension. This is classical in its profile and then some, and will age wonderfully on its sense of harmony. A little * awarded here. It is rare to find an entry level Meursault villages with so much class and character!!
“It is not just the Auxey blanc cuvées chez Lafouge that have excellent cut and grip on 2017, as this Meursault villages shows off beautiful structural tension. The nose is bright and classic, jumping from the glass in a mix of pear, passion fruit, hazelnut, chalky soil tones, citrus zest and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and racy, with a superb core for a villages bottling, lovely focus and grip and a long, bouncy and nicely tensile finish. Fine juice. 2020-2045. 91.” John Gilman for the 2017, NOT THE 2018 OFFERED HERE
