Decanter, 94 Points 

"The oldest vines in this 2.12ha Lafon monopole were planted in 1950. Although it was picked fairly late, the biodynamically-farmed vines managed to retain a vibrant acidity, with the aromas beginning with citrus peel and ripe pear, before revealing the spice and butter notes imparted by the cask ageing. On the palate, there is a marvellously juicy texture and a lingering finish that make this a wine to age. Drinking Window 2021 - 2034."

Jasper Morris, 93 Points 

"Pale green touch to the colour. You can taste the ripeness of the fruit flavours. Not too exotic but there are some ripe citrus notes nonetheless. The fruit concentration is very powerful and needs this level of acidity. Very youthful, and not nearly as heavy as some wines from this vintage." 

Wine Advocate, 91-93 Points 

"Aromas of pear, orange peel, honeycomb, toasted almonds and white flowers introduce Lafon's 2019 Meursault Clos de la Barre, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping wine with fine concentration, chalky structuring extract and lively acids. While its depth of fruit may lend it deceptive youthful charm, it's built to age. Dominique Lafon—joined by daughter Léa and nephew Pierre—began picking on September 5 and was very upbeat about the quality of the 2019 vintage, reporting yields in the region of 40 hectoliters per hectare and alcohol levels in the upper 13s. Both more concentrated and more incisive in white and finer-boned and more elegant in red, I'd give the nod to 2019 over 2018 in both colors at this address. And that is quite a compliment, as Lafon really excelled in 2018. In short, as Dominique hands the reins to the next generation, it's fair to say that the Domaine des Comtes Lafon is in very fine shape indeed." 

Vinous, 90-92 Points 

"The 2019 Meursault Clos-de-la-Barre has a taut nose like the Désirée. Perfumed white flower scents intermingle with yellow plum and citrus peel – very pretty. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and there is plenty of energy here. A twist of sour lemon lends tension toward the finish, and a touch of ginger pops up on the aftertaste. Excellent."
