Reviews 90-92 points Wine Advocate "Exhibiting aromas of cassis, rich soil tones and smoky blackberries, the richest, most muscular red in the cellar is the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Champans, a medium to full-bodied, ripe and powerful wine with a fleshy core of fruit and a long, heady finish. (WK)" 91-93 points Burghound "...elegant nose speaks of spiced plum, dark raspberry, red currant and a whiff of warm earth. The mouthfeel of the medium-bodied flavors is finer if a bit less concentrated, all wrapped in a discreetly mineral-inflected finish that is even firmer. (AM)"

About Domaine des Comtes 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.
