Jasper Morris, 99 Points 

"4.5 barrels is an acceptable yield for Montrachet in a short vintage. Clear bright colour, this has a brilliant weight of fruit with a glowing exceptional extra quality from the ripeness of the vintage, which this vineyard can easily carry. There is not the slightest suggestion of undue heat here, just a gorgeous weight of embryonic fruit. It will be a while before the detail emerges." 

Decanter, 99 Points 

"Lafon's third of a hectare parcel in the south-east corner of Montrachet on the Chassagne side faces south, and the wine produced is often voluptuously rich. The 2019, however, seemed to stand apart for the lovely lemony fruit on the initial attack that developed in time to something a bit more tropical. Marked still by a bit of oak spice that complements without overwhelming the nuanced fruit character. The texture is lush almost to the point of decadence, but balance is retained thanks to a lively line of fresh acidity. Drinking Window: 2024 - 2039." 

Wine Advocate, 98 Points 

"Unwinding in the glass with notes of pear, citrus oil, mandarin orange, ripe peaches, freshly baked bread and clear honey, Lafon's 2019 Montrachet Grand Cru is full-bodied, elegantly muscular and layered, with a deep and prodigiously concentrated core, striking mid-palate amplitude and a long, lip-smacking finish. In any comparison between the triumvirate of 2017, 2018, and 2019, I can see this, the youngest of the three, taking first place a decade from now." 

Burghound, 98 Points 

"A cool and ripe mix is composed by an array of both white and yellow orchard fruit and a beautiful array of spice elements, all of which is trimmed in discreet wood influence. This is a big but not massive wine as the flavors are sculpted and intense while offering a highly beguiling texture on the powerful and muscular finish that is phenomenally long. The Perrières is stunningly good but this possesses another dimension. One of the wines of the vintage." 

Alcohol: 13.5%
