Lafon, Meursault 2020Regular price $135.00 Save $-135.00
The Lafon winemaking entity began with roots in Burgundy going back to the late 19th century. Fast forward four generations later, and Domane de Comtes Lafon is by far known as one of the absolute greats of all the Burgundy growers. The current generation is spearheaded by Dominique Lafon, who carries on his family’s voice and values in the pursuit of both quality farming and terroir, eventually acquiring the biodynamic certification. Eventually, Dominique started his own eponymous project in 2008, separate from his family’s. The idea was that he wouldn’t have to keep things so entirely classic; this would give him room to experiment with his name front and center
All this Chardonnay is about 15 years in age and comes from a minuscule .3 hectare plot in Meursault. Barrel aging takes place over 18 months, about ⅓ of which is new.
