    Cuvée presentation

    Montrachet is a cru apart, prompting universal agreement among lovers of truly great white wines. Domaine des Comtes Lafon has delivered an extraordinary Montrachet. Grapes are harvested relatively late, helping the wine to acquire its extravagant richness. It is a wine apart, balanced as it is by an incomparable mineral power. A wine worthy of every superlative: leave it to age for at least 15 to 25 years, and drink with the finest dishes.
