2016 Dominique Lafon Beaune 1er Cru Vignes Franches #151993674
Based on 6 reviews on Cellartracker.com
Reviews 92 points Vinous "The 2016 Beaune Vignes Franches 1er Cru has a little more amplitude on the nose compared to de Montille’s Beaune Les Perrieres: raspberry and black plum fruit with subtle undergrowth aromas. Neat and tidy. The palate has an appealing rondeur on the entry, plump but not overweight with blackberry, white pepper and just a little new oak to be subsumed on the finish. Slightly modern in style, but well crafted. (NM)"

About Dominique Lafon
When Dominique took over in 1984, the vineyard holdings were spread across Meursault, Volnay, Monthélie, and Puligny-Montrachet, with most under contract. But once those agreements expired, this tour de force got to work. He took complete control back of the vineyards, implemented organic and biodynamic practices, and built a respected reputation for honoring the terroir of each vineyard. Best known for his whites, these wines range from round and seductive to robust and serious, to a signature finesse in his Montrachet Grand Cru.
Ever since Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate declared, “Dominique Lafon is on fire, in a zone, on top of his game. He’s never made better wines, and he improves with each passing vintage,” collectors worldwide have been jumping at the opportunity to acquire these prized bottlings.
