Reviews 91-93 points Wine Advocate "Aromas of pear, orange peel, honeycomb, toasted almonds and white flowers introduce Lafon's 2019 Meursault Clos de la Barre, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping wine with fine concentration, chalky structuring extract and lively acids. While its depth of fruit may lend it deceptive youthful charm, it's built to age. (WK)" 90-93 points Burghound "Here too gentle wood frames ripe and fresh aromas of pear and apple compote, acacia blossom and an interesting hint of orange peel. There is fine concentration to the rich yet precise medium-bodied flavors that possess a highly seductive texture thanks to the abundance of dry extract on the bone-dry, citrusy and impressively lengthy finale.

About Domaine des Comtes Lafon

A pinnacle of Burgundian viticulture, Domaine des Comtes Lafon is run by the brilliant Dominique Lafon, who led the estate to international acclaim over the past four decades. Renowned for being a wine mastermind, Dominique reclaimed full control of the vineyards spread across Meursault, Volnay, Monthélie, and Puligny-Montrachet in 1984, implementing organic and biodynamic practices that have become the backbone of their extraordinary winemaking.

Comprising approximately 14 hectares, the Domaine is a celebration of biodiversity and sustainable viticulture. Their vineyards, some dating back to the late 19th century, boast old strains of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, meticulously propagated by sélection massale. A dedication to organic farming was augmented by the adoption of biodynamic principles, earning the Domaine organic certification in 1995 and biodynamic certification in 1998.

The wines of Domaine des Comtes Lafon, often hailed as some of the world's finest, are a true reflection of their terroirs, achieved through a meticulous and natural winemaking process. Yields are deliberately limited, and the harvest, conducted by hand, undergoes rigorous sorting. The Chardonnays are subjected to a cool settling of the must, and the Pinot Noirs, mostly de-stemmed, undergo a meticulous fermentation process in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. This traditional, deliberate approach results in wines bottled unfiltered, 18 to 22 months post-harvest.

From the round and seductive to the robust and serious, the wines express a signature finesse and complexity that is unmistakably Lafon. Holding exclusive ownership over every Premier Cru in Meursault and producing some of the region's finest white wines, Domaine des Comtes Lafon is a paragon of Burgundian winemaking, offering a compelling portrait of the region's varied terroirs.
