Comtes Lafon Meursault Charmes 1995 Premier Cru 75cl / 13%
A bottle of 1995 Meursault-Charmes Premier Cru from Domaines des Comtes Lafon. This was made by Dominique Lafon, 'sometimes, and plausibly, described as the world’s best producer of white wine' according to Decanter's Stephen Brook.
The Meursault-Charmes vineyard is east-facing and grown on a moderate slope of deep clay-limestone soil with a rocky subsoil. Half a hectare was planted in the 1920s, with another half hectare planted in the mid-1990s, and the remaining 0.07 planted in the 1960s. Yields at the Domaine average around 35 hectolitres per hectare.
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where it has been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
