Last tasted in April last year, and I’d say that this is a bit nicer bottle.
1992 Comtes Lafon, Monthélie 1er Les Duresses
Medium, perhaps medium-plus red colour. The nose begins rather deeply; a baked dark-fruit that slowly becomes redder and redder and shows a subtle but interesting pyrazine note – not quite like a 2004/2011 though. To start with there’s good power and acidity but the impression is a little ‘lumpen’. This wine needs about 30 minutes the stretch its legs, showing much more aplomb – even if the grainy tannin refuses to put on a suave suite – still, there’s no astringency.
Rebuy – Yes
ops – silly me – was I supposed to publish something pink and lovey today…? Maybe I’ll find some pink kittens for you later today 😉
