Domaine des Comtes Lafon has been in the Lafon family since 1865. Dominique Lafon took over the domaine in 1983. It is comprised of approximately 14 hectares situated in the communes of Volnay, Monthélie, Chassagne-Montrachet, and of course, Meursault, where the domaine and its monopole vineyard Clos de la Barre are located. 

All of his vineyards are cultivated biodynamically and he is proud to own every Premier Cru in Meursault. As part of the fourth generation of winemakers in the Lafon family, Dominique and his wines are superstars not only in Burgundy but throughout the world.

The monopole Clos de la Barre is just 2.1ha, producing wines with an intense combination of richness and acidity.

Tasting Notes from Vinous:

Pale bright yellow. Deep, ripe aromas of dried nectarine, peach and spices. At once silky and energetic, conveying a sappy character and an elegant texture. Finishes with sneaky length and a lemon zest dustiness that leaves the palate refreshed and should enable this wine to age. Lafon believes that a light filtration will further smooth out this wine.

Winemaking
The whites are generally stirred on their lees, depending on the cuvee, and then undergo malolactic fermentation, which ends in May following the harvest. The whites are bottled unfiltered 18 to 22 months after the harvest.
