Meursault 1er Cru "Goutte d'Or" 2017 Domaine des Comtes Lafon
Domaine des Comtes Lafon's Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or is a gem among Burgundy wines. This extraordinary white wine hails from the Meursault production area, renowned for its long-standing winemaking tradition. The terroir here is known for its rich, well-draining limestone soils, imparting the wine with distinctive minerality.
Exclusively Chardonnay grapes are used and cultivated with utmost care in the Domaine des Comtes Lafon vineyards. The philosophy of organic farming underpins every stage of the process, from manual vineyard work to judicious use of treatments. This respect for nature is palpable in the wine's characteristics.
Vinification is equally meticulous. After hand-harvesting the grapes, gentle pressing and barrel fermentation follow, with extended aging on the lees. This process ensures remarkable aromatic complexity and stunning structure.
The end result is a wine that captivates the senses. Domaine des Comtes Lafon's Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or offers an aromatic bouquet ranging from citrusy notes to hints of hazelnut and butter. On the palate, it is full, round, and generous, with lively freshness that perfectly balances the richness of Chardonnay. It's a wine that lends itself to exceptional aging but can also be enjoyed when young for its fruity vibrancy.
