Response to Do you have any thoughts on the Domaine des Comtes, Lafon Les Charmes?
First on the Coche Dury Corton Charlemagne. This is one of the rarest most sought after burgundies in the world. Its pricing is on a par with the best Le Montrachets around. And for good reason. It is spectacular wine. Indeed Coche Dury wines in general are spectacular. I have some of his villages Meursault and it is just wonderful. You would never guess that it is not 1er cru. Market prices of his wines reflect both their rarity and quality. Comtes Lafon is another great Meursault domaine. His best is his Clos de la Barre and his Charmes is not bad at all. As long as we are touting great Meursault domaines, don't forget Albert Grivault wines, particularly his monopole Clos de la Perrieres. The Charmes vineyard is below the road, running north south between Meursault and Puligny (actually not the village of Puligny but the road above the village that passes directly by Le Montrachet) and would generally rank below the wines directly above which are Perrieres.
