  • MOUTH: A truly exquisite gustatory experience. The attack is ample and generous, giving way to a creamy and velvety texture. Flavors of stone fruits unfold with elegance, accompanied by subtle nuances of honey and toasted bread. Balanced acidity brings a delightful liveliness to the ensemble, while the never-ending finish reveals mineral and woody notes.

Jules Joseph Barthelemy Lafon, a native of Tarn-et-Garonne, is the creator of the Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Born in 1864, his job as controller in the administration led him to settle in Dijon in 1887. He married in 1894 Marie Boch, daughter of a merchant-owner of Meursault. Involved in local life, Jules Lafon, then Mayor of Meursault, restored in 1923 the end of harvest meal, the "Paulée de Meursault" (with the help of Jacques Prieur), still being practiced each year. He abandoned his professional duties in 1931 to devote himself to the family estate, which he extended through the purchase of several Premiers Crus: Genevrières, PerrièresCharmes and a parcel of Grand Cru: the famous Montrachet.

At his death, the estate is partly given in sharecropping, and Henry, after the untimely death of his brother Pierre, undertook to sell the vines. His nephew René opposed himself to this decision, and became  head of the estate in 1956. He undertook the restoration of the vineyards, and made important replanting. In 1961, for the first time, the entire harvest was bottled. Dominique Lafon, current domain manager (and owner of the Domaine Dominique Lafon), succeeded his father in 1984, and began in 1987 to break the sharecropping contracts. Since 1993, all the vines are directly operated by the Domaine des Comtes Lafon.

The area has 16.30 hectares of vines, planted 1/3 Pinot Noir, 2/3 Chardonnay, spread over 4 towns and producing 15 appellations. The production method has been biodynamic since the 1998 vintage, and the estate got the Organic Agriculture certification that year. The production quality is ensured upstream in the vines, whose average age is high, worked without fertilizer and through manual harvesting and aging of wines for many months before bottling.
