Domaine des Comtes Lafon
Domaine des Comtes Lafon
Attending Winemaker: Dominique Lafon
Domaine des Comtes Lafon has been in the Lafon family since 1865. Domnique Lafon took over the domaine in 1983. It is comprised of approximately 14 hectares situated in the communes of Volnay, Monthélie, Puligny-Montrachet, 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!

Dominique also holds land in Mâcon under the Domaine name Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. All of his vineyards are cultivated bio-dynamically and he now owns every 1er 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.
