In a typical vintage, Dominique Lafon produces 40 228-liter barrels of Meursault Charmes (white). In 2003 he made 14! Grilled oak-infused candied pears, spices, and honeyed minerals can be detected in its expressive aromatic profile. Medium-bodied, thick, and silky-textured, it is packed with spiced pears, buttered toast, stones, and minerals. Exceptionally long and refined, this is a candidate for drinking over the next 9 years.
