93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2010

(ready for bottling) Complex nose combines peach, apple, crushed stone, marzipan and sexy vanillin oak, plus a high note of cherry. Rich, suave and concentrated but not as silky today as the Genevrieres. In fact, this very juicy wine comes across as almost lean. Best today on the very long, juicy, lemon-and-limey back end. This has a lower pH than the Genevrieres, notes Lafon, who can always come up with a terrific blend here, as he enjoys one of the prime positions in Charmes, just next to Perrieres, and is able to blend juice from 18-, 40- and 75-year-old vines, declassifying barrels he's less happy with. This is Lafon's flagship white premier cru bottling and a consistent winner; happily, it's much easier to find in the marketplace than the Perrieres.

While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
