Domaine des Comtes Lafon, Meursault 1er Cru “Porusots”, 2017

$339.00

Porusot, like Perrieres, means "stony place", which tells you all you need to know about the soils of this great terroir. Pointing a perfect southeast, it scoops up the fresh morning sun for perfect ripening of grapes. The 2017 is a fantastic vintage of this wine from Lafon, like the 2014, but with a little more generosity.

This is a FIVE STAR WINE from Jasper Morris In Burgundy

JMIB at Burgfest July 2021:  "Clear pale lemon colour with an impressive depth of fruit on the palate. This is beautifully balanced with an engaging mineral freshness at the back, no more than medium bodied but with a fine hand on the tiller and very persistent. Oak is certainly present but integrates well."

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 92-94
"A restrained nose is reserved to the point of being almost mute though aggressive swirling eventually liberates notes of green fruit wood toast lemon and spiced pear. The gorgeously textured concentrated and muscular broad-shouldered flavors manage to be at once powerful yet caressing while delivering first-rate length on the bone-dry finish. This is actually a bit finer than it usually is while still packing plenty of punch. Patience advised."

Antonio Galloni

AG 91-93
"Bright pale yellow. Tight lively scents of soft citrus fruits nectarine and hazelnut plus a note of oak spice. Quite dry and classic on the palate with its stone fruit and spice flavors supported by a firm mineral spine. No easy sweetness here! I particularly liked this wine's dusty tactile finish which shows rising length and noteworthy mineral tension."

Robert Parker

RP 90-92
"The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Porusots exhibits aromas of green orchard fruit dried white flowers and toasted nuts framed by a touch of toasty new oak. On the palate it's medium to full-bodied satiny and saline concluding with a pure finish."
