Domaine des Comtes Lafon Les Porusots 2020

94-96 Vinous
The 2020 Meursault Les Porusots 1er Cru has a perfumed bouquet with lemon verbena, orange pith, honeysuckle and pressed yellow flowers. Vibrant and concentrated. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, a little more extract here perhaps, spicy with touches of stem ginger towards the persistent finish. Superb. This vies with the Meursault-Charmes as "best in (Lafon's) show". Closure: Diam 30
92-94 William Kelley, Wine Advocate
A particular success this year is the 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Porusots, a lovely wine that wafts from the glass with notes of crisp orchard fruit, citrus zest, white flowers, blanched almonds and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, tangy and chiseled, it's vibrant, concentrated and incisive, concluding with a chalky finish. Assessed at this early juncture, it's as good a Porusots as I can remember tasting chez Lafon.
92-95 Jasper Morris
Our plump and peachy friend, never quite seems to have the finesse on the first nose, but shows its class later on. There is more depth and body than the Bouchères, a little lemon scent, a weight of deep white fruit, even some fresh apples, and attractive little points of nuanced acidity. Overall, really well balanced and very persistent.
91-94 Burghound
A slightly riper and vaguely honeyed nose exhibits a lovely array of smoked apple, essence of pear, acacia and a whiff of jasmine tea. There is notably better size and weight, though not the finesse, to the middle weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract on the firmer and more complex finale. This excellent effort should amply reward 10 plus years of keeping.
