Producer Notes

Dominique Lafon has an unwavering loyalty to traditional winemaking, but the flexibility to know when and where progressive techniques are warranted. The vineyards are biodynamic, and wines are barrel fermented, and bottled nearly two years after harvest.

Nuances of white flowers and subtle wood spice adds interest to the predominant aromas of pear and white peach that continue onto the elegant, pure and unusually fine flavors that culminate in a linear and beautifully well-focused finish. Despite the solid focus, this is relatively generous in the context of the vintage and delivers terrific quality at this level with the balance to age over the medium term. Recommended.

(bottled just two weeks prior to my visit) Peach, orange and nuts on the nose. Round, fat, sweet and rich in the mouth, with very ripe citrus flavors. Wonderfully broad and full for the vintage but not at all heavy. Finishes ripe, fruity and long. This is about 13% natural alcohol. Lafon, who is a great fan of the 2004 vintage, believes that these wines will at some point go through "an ugly stage," but they are certainly delicious today.

Lively, energetic, concentrated on the nose. Easy, well balanced, some depth to it but it will never be a must-have bottle. It?s an easy option bottle when you don'tfeel like spending a lot, alas.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
