Notes
Saturated red-ruby. Briary dark and red berries are complicated by chocolate and smoky soil tones on the nose. Hugely rich, creamy and seamless, with wild small red berries and smoke dominating. Excellent balance and breed here; ethereal but at the same time sharply delineated. Rich, smooth tannins come on late and are thoroughly buffered by the wine's fruit.

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Comte Lafon's cellars are deep beneath the ground, believed to be some of the deepest and coolest in Burgundy. Here, Dominique nurtures the golden produce of his 32 acres of land in the Meursault, Montrachet, Monthélie and Volnay appellations. The wines reach levels of quality rarely attained and certainly not surpassed by other growers in Burgundy or, indeed, the world. They are the result of intense arduous work in the vineyard (where strict organic and biodynamic methods are set in place) and Dominique’s expert eye in the cellars. Such is the intensity and concentration of the whites that even the Village Meursault, a blend of young vines from Charmes, young vines from Clos de la Barre and vines from within the Meursault villages appellation, requires a longer than average élévage period in barrel which usually exceeds 20 months.
