This notable estate in Meursault was founded in the late 1800's and is today managed by the charismatic Dominique Lafon. In 1923 while Mayor of Meursault, Jules Lafon revived the tradition of celebrating the end of the grape harvest with a meal. Although originally for the estate proprietor and his workers he also invited 35 of his friends to a banquet and the famous 'Paulée de Meursault' was born. It rapidly evolved to become, after the banquet at Clos Vougeot and the wine auctions at the Hospice of Beaune, the final stage of the 'Trois Glorieuses'. Nowadays, around 600 people take part each year and during the course of the proceedings, the literary prize of the same name is presented.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Meursault Village has a lively, mint-tinged bouquet with just a touch of anise coming through as it opens in the glass. The palate is generous on the entry with citrus lemon, dried pineapple and a touch of honeycomb, gently unfolding in the glass with a persistent finish. Enjoy this over the next 6-10 years.
