The Lafon 2006 Meursault Clos de la Barre offers another example of very clear, bright fruit; a polished, satiny texture yet with underlying firmness and palpable mineral density; nut oil richness; and a long, expressive finish featuring luscious lime, grapefruit, and pineapple. Along with narcissus and citrus, there are hints of coconut, vanilla, and lanolin on the nose, although only 3-4 of the 50-some barrels were new. Some of the exotic character on exhibit here can be chalked up to “late” harvest, so quickly were the grapes evolving in the four prior days of picking. I suspect this will be best enjoyed over the next 4-6 years. The more mineral – iodine, salt, chalk – inflected 2005 is formidably dense and sappy. Dec 2008, www.robertparker.com
