Mild reduction doesn't detract unduly from the otherwise ripe orchard fruit aromas that merge into detailed and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that possess fine precision on the tension-filled and noticeably finer finish. This is really quite good for its level as I particularly like the sense of proportion.

Today it comes across as a touch lithe but there is plenty of freshness and verve in the glass. It will be interesting to see where this goes in bottle. I tasted the Clos de la Barre from tank where it was awaiting bottling scheduled for July 2011 probably not the ideal time to taste the wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. Dominique Lafon's 2009s are just as stunning from bottle as they were when I tasted them in cask earlier this year. Lafon is one of the most thoughtful growers in Burgundy. Along with a group of his colleagues Lafon is among the producers who has basically re-examined every aspect of the way he makes wine in response to the problem of premature oxidation. Today-s wines spend more time on their lees but that is just one of many changes that have taken place here over the last few years. Except as noted I tasted the 2009s from bottle. --- Antonio Galloni
