2008 Comtes Lafon, Monthélie 1er Les Duresses
There’s a bit of texture from some dissolved CO2 – I make a quick impression of a racing driver, there’s a ‘phut’ from the end of the bottle (as I remove my finger), and we can carry on. Medium, medium-plus colour. The nose has a little of that stewed 2008 cabbage impression but’s completely dispersed by a quick swirl – revealed is a dark cherry fruit surrounded with a biscuity note. In the mouth this just lovely – nicely intense dark fruit with a beautiful acid lift in the mid-palate, only just ripe – picked à point! With the lift of acidity, there’s also a flash of frank red fruit. Decent texture with a little furry tannin, finishing with a lovely fresh flavour. Finished rather quickly, it has to be said…
Rebuy – Yes
