Reviews 89-91 points Wine Advocate "The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes offers up aromas of plummy fruit, candied peel and smoky grilled meats, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny palate that's pure and melting this year, concluding with a stony finish. It's a pretty middle-weight Clos des Chenes that will drink well in its comparative youth. (WK)" 92 points John Gilman "The 2017 Clos des Chenes chez Lafon is an excellent wine in the making, offering up a refined and nicely red fruity bouquet of cherries, red plums, raw cocoa, gamebird, a complex base of soil tones, cedar and woodsmoke. On the palate the wine is pure, full and nicely structured, with a good core of fruit, fine-grained tannins, tangy acids and lovely focus and grip on the long, refined and complex finish. (JG)"

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.
