lafon’s 1992 monthelie les duresses


1992 Comtes Lafon, Monthelie 1er Les Duresses
The last bottle was corked, but this is fine – unfortunately it’s my last.
A wide, fresh and open nose with a depth of faintly spiced raspberry. The palate starts narrow – and like the nose, fresh. After a fine set of 1997 grand crus over the last few days this seems rather meager but slowly the wine opens, still with a little tannin holding on. A nice line of flavour that slowly melts in a mouth-watering finish with just enough sweetness. A very good wine for a modest, 25 year-old vintage! Yum!
Rebuy – Yes
