  • Neal Martin, October 2020, Score: 88-90

    The 2019 Monthélie Les Duresses offers crisp raspberry and red cherry scents on the nose, which is well defined and floral in style. The palate is fresh on the entry, and quite fleshy for a Monthélie, with a brisk, uncomplicated finish. Fine.

  • Decanter, October 2020, Score: 92

    Lafon has more than 1ha on the prime, east-facing slopes overlooking Meursault in Monthelie Les Duresses. The fruit is destemmed and fermented slowly, with punching down daily, before ageing in cask to produce this elegant wine, with a lovely, ripe cherry fruit, fresh, ethereal texture and a lingering finish.

  • Jancis Robinson, October 2020, Score: 16+

    1 ha. Relatively young vines (Dominique planted mostly in 1986). The vineyard faces east and is quite cold and late ripening so is always the last to be picked. Cask sample; will go into tank in December and bottle in February 2021. Lighter red than usual, apparently. Bitter-cherry fruit on the nose, bright and slightly tart on the end. Round tannins.

  • Jasper Morris MW, October 2020, Score: 90-93

    Pretty pink purple, with a lightly reductive nose. Lively red fruit, clean fresh raspberry notes with a bit more stuffing behind. A Monthelie with finesse and notable persistence. It may be the ‘entry level’ Lafon red, but it would not be easy to find a finer Monthelie.

  • WK, January 2021, Score: 88-90

    Notes of sweet berry fruit, raw cocoa and loamy soil introduce the 2019 Monthélie Les Duresses, a medium-bodied, beautifully refined red with a lively core of fruit that's framed by powdery, ultra-refined tannins. This has turned out especially well.

Region

Monthélie

Just to the south of Volnay, Monthelie is a relatively unknown Burgundian village and as such can represent excellent value. A slightly subdued version of its better-known neighbour, but still highly perfumed and elegant. These wines are generally best drunk fairly young. A little Chardonnay is planted in the vineyards adjoining Meursault.
