Domaine des Comtes Lafon


Attending Winemaker: Dominique Lafon

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. In 1923, Dominique’s great-grandfather, Jules Lafon, revived the idea of the traditional Burgundian post-harvest meal and held the first Paulée de Meursault at Domaine des Comtes Lafon. 90 years later, the tradition is still going strong!

In addition to the family holdings, Dominique also owns land in Mâcon under the domaine name Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. More recently, he has been purchasing vineyards throughout the Côte de Beaune and bottling wines under his own name. 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.
