Domaine Lafarge was run for the last 60 years by the legendary Michel Lafarge and nowadays is run by his son Frédéric assisted by his wife Chantal. This domaine is famous for producing some of the greatest traditional Volnays, from biodynamic farmed vineyards.

The domaine consists of over 11.6 hectares under vine, most of them in Volnay and Beaune, including a 0.9 hectares holding of Clos des Chênes and many top 1er cru vineyards in the appellation.

This Aligoté comes from a miniscule 0.8ha 1937 plantings over deep clay and limestone.
