Domaine des Comtes Lafon 2018 Meursault Goutte d'Or, Burgundy
As usual, the 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or, which derives from clay-rich soils, makes for quite a contrast after the Bouchères, where the soils are richer in active calcium. Unwinding to reveal aromas of citrus oil, fresh peach, white flowers and a deft touch of minty new oak, the wine is medium to full-bodied, muscular and incisive, with a deeper and more structured profile than the ethereal Bouchères.
—William Kelley, Wine Advocate
The 2018 Meursault Goutte d'Or 1er Cru has a beautiful nose of orange blossom, crushed rock and touch of quince, very focused and articulating its terroir. The palate is very well balanced with a tangy, lightly spiced opening featuring hints of curry leaf. Just a touch of reduction on the finish, but it feels very persistent and leaves the mouth tingling for 30 second afterward. Excellent. 93 points
