Lot presentation

Meursault Comtes Lafon (Domaine des) 2005

The wine

Three plots are used for the Meursault Village cuvée: "En Luraules", "En la Barre" and "La Petite Montagne", giving the blend an elegant mineral character. The wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation with ambient yeasts and malolactic fermentation is allowed. This is a superb Meursault Village from Comtes Lafon; more than a match for many premier crus.

About the Producer Comtes Lafon

It now uses biodynamics and was officially classified "organic" in 1998.
