2013 Meursault Clos de la Barre, Comtes Lafon

Open, floral nose with notes of marzipan and white stones, from the heart of the village this is archetypal Meursault. Great clarity of flavour and very complete: this is perfect Chardonnay in my eyes.

2013 Meursault Clos de la Barre, Comtes Lafon
Domaine des Comtes Lafon

Dominique Lafon took over his family domaine in Meursault in 1985, and since then has earned a reputation that ensures his wines are some of the most sought-after and celebrated in the world of Burgundy for their brilliance and longevity. His Meursaults and Volnays are what define Burgundy for many. In 1999 he turned his attention south, to the Mâconnais. He believed – and still believes today – that some of Burgundy’s finest and most nuanced terroirs are found here. Héritiers du Comte Lafon in Milly-Lamartine now offers some of the best value white Burgundies, made in the same spirit as the Meursault domaine but sold at a fraction of the price. From the 2020 vintage onwards Dominique has been handing over the reins to the next generation, with his daughter Léa and nephew Pierre starting to run the show.
