Reviews 96-98 points Wine Advocate "The 2017 Montrachet Grand Cru is a classic in the making, wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, citrus blossom, green apple, mandarin and beeswax, subtly framed by new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, beautifully complete and multidimensional, with a broad, satiny attack, a deep, layered mid-palate and a pure, penetrating finish. Youthfully reserved today, its almost understated elegance conceals impressive reserved of structure and extract. (WK)" 19 points Jancis Robinson "100% new oak. Barrel sample. Honey and lemon on the nose, with the oak hidden from view except in a light dusting of spice and savoury richness that becomes more pronounced on the palate. Completely absorbing on the palate with all that intensity. ‘Baroque’, proffers Lafon as I struggle for the right words, but so fresh on the finish. Massive and completely captivating. Fills the mouth with spice and fruit sweetness and umami complexity. (JH)" 95-98 points Burghound "As good as the Perrieres is, and it's exceptionally good, this offers another step up with its deft touch of wood framing the highly restrained but even more complex nose of mildly exotic aromas of passion fruit, apple, lemon-lime, pear, white flowers and discreet spice elements. The sleek, focused and almost painfully intense imposingly-scaled flavors brim with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract that also buffers the very firm acid spine shaping the hugely long finish that evidences focused power and plenty of minerality...(AM)"

Dominique Lafon of Domaine des Comtes Lafon in the vineyard

About Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Burgundy aficionados need no introduction to Domaine des Comtes Lafon. Now into its fourth generation with Dominique Lafon leading the charge, this historic estate has spent the last 30 years climbing to the top - earning its title as “the world’s best producer of white wine” (Decanter Magazine).

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.
