Estate : Dominique Lafon is considered to be one of the best winemakers in France, making some of the most coveted white Burgundies that exist from the Côte de Beaune and the Mâconnais. Though he is best known for his work with the family domaines, Domaine des Comtes Lafon and L’Héritiers du Comtes Lafon, he began producing his own label (separate from his family) beginning in 2008. His new project (4.5ha in total) may have the official status of a négociant, but the wines are from vineyards which Dominique owns or farms and bottled on a separate estate (just down the street from Comtes Lafon).
The vineyards are farmed with the same principles of organics and biodynamics as Comte Lafon and are vinified with the same care and attention to quality that spurred Dominique’s reputation in the region and around the world.
Tasting Notes : Showing a beautiful purple with a really classic pinot nose, there is plenty of substance here with beautiful deep red fruit and a little tannin at the back.
This is another great red from Dominique Lafon.
