Comte Lafon banner

In 1999 the Lafon family of Meursault bought a small, 14 hectare, domaine in the Mâconnais at Milly-Lamartine and renamed it Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon and additional vineyards were added in 2003 and 2010. The winemaking operation is based in Milly-Lamartine and the wines are made by the very talented, Caroline Gon under the watchful eye of Dominique Lafon, who is widely considered to be one of the greatest winemakers in France today.

Dominique has long believed in the potential of the region and feels that not enough other winemakers are striving to produce as fine as product as possible in this picturesque region. This pioneering spirit means that Dominique runs this estate along the same lines of its more famous sibling in Meursault.

Biodynamic viticulture, intense soil rejuvenation, and lots of hard work in the vines that includes tight yield controls and extensive green harvesting. The wines are mostly vinified in stainless steel vats with the balance occurring in large wooden foudres. The end result is that this estate produces some of the most complex, vibrant and impressively concentrated wines the region has ever seen.
