Meursault "Les Casses-Têtes" 2013, Domaine Jean & Gilles Lafouge


The Lafouge family have been producing wine since 1650 and I presume Jean and Gilles are brothers with their winery based in Auxey-Duresses. This Meursault has an appealing, reflective, bright silver yellow colour. The nose is a plump Meursault classic. Ripe oranges, honeydew melon, even touches of pineapple and banana. Feminine vanilla aromas. Despite being so forward on the nose, this Meursault has excellent balance, freshness, lovely melon and pear fruit and a surprisingly dry finish. This promises a good evolution for the next 3 to 4 years and some gouleyant drinking along the way. I believe Ammar Al-Gevrey would appreciate this unsung classic. Scores 21/30 for a Meursault.
