The 2010 Meursault Perrieres is the most sublime, refined of the Meursault premier crus. It melds elements of precise minerality and expressive fruit to match its understated, soft personality. In a sense, it brings together the best of the Genevrieres and Charmes. Hints of white flowers and mint add lift on the finish, but this is another wine that is heading straight for a period of dormancy. Anticipated maturity: 2015+. (Not yet released) Comtes Lafon’s 2010 whites are just as impressive from bottle as they were in barrel. Dominique Lafon told me the wines changed quite a bit and found their precision during fining. The 2010s at Comtes Lafon are tight and powerful, with plenty of underlying fruit and depth. The 2010s were bottled between March and early June 2012.
