   * **Meursault Perrieres** (24 Mar 2011): I don't normally post about wines less than 6 years old, but this wine was notably advanced -- it tasted like a 7 or 8 year old wine. It was fabulous, but scary. Complete cork seal failure? I hope so, as I own a lot of this one [Don Cornwell]   * **Meursault Perrieres** (24 Mar 2011): I don't normally post about wines less than 6 years old, but this wine was notably advanced -- it tasted like a 7 or 8 year old wine.

   * **Meursault–Perrières** (Nov. 2019 – Oct. 2020): 3 btls not oxidized. Classic Lafon in the nose & on the palate with outstanding vinosity. A btl opened in Nov. 2019 was still youthful & less than fully expressive despite decanting. Another btl opened in May 2020 was showing significantly better after 30 mins in the glass. The lingering perfume in the carafe used to decant it was irresistible. 3rd btl in Oct. 2020 felt a little tired. Color is now yellow gold, but there'​s no sign of oxidation. From 3 btls purchased at retail in Hong Kong in Feb. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]   * **Meursault–Perrières** (Nov. 2019 – Oct. 2020): 3 btls not oxidized.

 +  * **Meursault–Perrières** (Nov. 2020 – ): 3 btls not oxidized. Drinking beautifully (as above) with no trace of sur–maturité. From a lot of 6 purchased from the auction platform of a reputable West Coast retailer in Apr. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]
   * **Puligny-Montrachet,​ Champgain** (March 2015): Vibrant, full of life and singing, not oxidized. [Ken Lamb]   * **Puligny-Montrachet,​ Champgain** (March 2015): Vibrant, full of life and singing, not oxidized. [Ken Lamb]
