There is one domain in Meursault that stands out for both its quality and resulting worldwide reputation: Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Established at the beginning of the 19th century by a wealthy amateur called Jules Lafon, the house is today directed by his great grandson, Dominique Lafon. It uses the same family traditions and covers 13 appellations. The domain has for a long time aimed to preserve the environment in its winemaking process. It now uses biodynamics and was officially classified "organic" in 1998.
About the cuvée
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.
