Dominique Lafon Meursault Les Narvaux 2015
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. The Narvaux vineyard is located on the Meursault hill above the Genevrières where the soil is full of energy: a line which ends towards the Perrières next to Puligny-Montrachet.
