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'. Today, around 600 people take part each year and during the course of the proceedings, the literary prize of the same name is presented.

As usual, some of the 2018 Meursault Clos de la Baronne will be bottled separately for the US market and the rest blended into the domaine's regular Meursault. Revealing expressive aromas of ripe pears, orange oil, nutmeg and fresh pastry, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with succulent acids and an open-knit, charming personality. This will drink well young. 88-90
