Happily, there are fifteen barrels of this stunning new premier cru in the Comtes Lafon lineup, and this is a wine that is going to make fans of the domaine very, very happy in the years to come! The stunning nose soars from the glass in a refined mélange of apple, pear, iodine, hazelnuts, a deep and complex base of soil, a touch of orange zest and a judicious base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and absolutely rock solid at the core, with great cut and focus, impressive complexity and stunning backend mineral drive on the perfectly balanced and youthful finish. An utterly classic example of Poruzots and soon to be one of the stars in the Comtes Lafon cellars. Time to get in line!

(BH90-93 points) A slightly riper nose offers up notes of both white and yellow orchard fruit plus a distinct note of Granny Smith apples, all of which is trimmed in discreet wood toast. There is an enticing mouth feel to... (BH90-93 points) A slightly riper nose offers up notes of both white and yellow orchard fruit plus a distinct note of Granny Smith apples, all of which is trimmed in discreet wood toast. There is an enticing mouth feel to the medium weight plus flavors thanks to the abundant level of dry extract that coats the palate on the muscular and powerful finish. Texturally speaking, this could not be more different from the Bouchères.

The 2011 Meursault 1er Cru Porusots from Comtes-Lafon has improved since I last tasted it. It displays fine precision on the nose with touches of chalk, grilled walnuts, orange rind and citrus peel. It is intense, but very well controlled. The palate is fresh and vibrant with very well-judged acidity, lovely orange zest and subtle tropical fruit notes, with plenty of swagger and verve on the long finish. This is the most harmonious and convincing wine of this flight. - Neal Martin

The 2011 impresses for its purity, depth and beautiful, layered texture. The Poruzots drinks well today, but also has the potential to age nicely. Lafon's parcel is on the lower part of the slope, where the soils are rich in clay, which seems to give the wine much of its volume. This is also the last of the Domaine's parcels to be picked.

91+ Peach and orange oil on the nose, along with a light peppery quality. Ripe, concentrated and glyceral but with good acidity framing the soft citrus and spice flavors. Firmly structured wine but today its oak element... 91+ Peach and orange oil on the nose, along with a light peppery quality. Ripe, concentrated and glyceral but with good acidity framing the soft citrus and spice flavors. Firmly structured wine but today its oak element clashes with its acidity, leaving the wine dry and imploded--even a bit tannic. This needs a good five years in the cellar.
