Tasting Notes

There are fully 68 barrels of the 2018 Meursault Village this year, a considerable improvement over the usual 50, and the wine is already very inviting, revealing notes of pear, Meyer lemon, hazelnuts, drawn butter and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, with good cut to balance its mid-palate amplitude, concluding with a flavorful finish.

William Kelley, Wine Advocate, January 2020

Pale lemon colour. The 2018 Meursault offers a really racy bouquet then puts on some weight on the palate, though never too much these days chez Lafon. Some almond paste along with light yellow plum fruit, balanced, and with just the length it should have.
