    Description

    Montrachet 1996
    Comtes Lafon
    Bottle (1)
    "The initial hints of secondary development are now beginning to manifest themselves yet this remains youthful and still largely primary on the fantastically complex nose that offers up an explosive mix of white flower aromas, spice hints and ripe citrus notes that continue on to the vibrant, muscular, dense and exceptionally powerful flavors that possess flat out incredible detail, all wrapped in a racy, elegant and gorgeously pure finish. This is a jaw-dropping combination of superb punch yet this remains a wine of nuance and it seems as though the length just won't quit." (97pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Nov 2008)
