Dominique Lafon is considered to be one of the best winemakers in France, making some of the most coveted white Burgundies in the Côte de Beaune and the Mâconnais. Though he is best known for his work with the family domaines, Domaine des Comtes Lafon and L’Héritiers du Comtes Lafon, he began producing his own label (separate from his family) beginning in 2008. His new project (4.5ha in total) may have the official status of a négociant, but the wines are from vineyards which Dominique owns or farms and bottled on a separate estate (just down the street from Comtes Lafon). The vineyards are farmed with the same principles of organics and biodynamics as Comte Lafon and are vinified with the same care and attention to quality that spurred Dominique’s reputation in the region and around the world.

Dominique Lafon produces between 1000-1250 cases of this Bourgogne Blanc in each vintage. The grapes are sourced from 2 parcels; one in Meursault under the lieu-dit Le Limozin in "Les Grandes Coutures"; the second in Puligny-Montrachet lieu-dit Les Femelottes. The age of the vineyards are 50 years and 20 years with pebbly and clay soils in Meursault, while gray and sandy in Puligny. Lafon presses whole clusters, the must is then cold settled then racked into barrels (no new oak) and bottled after 12 months. Little to no battonage. Light fining and filtering.
