2014 Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru, Comtes Lafon

Showing the oak character a touch when we tasted it, this is broad and intense, with astounding mineral complexity and intensity. There’s a suave element to the texture here, with a linear finish. Superb.

2014 Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru, Comtes Lafon
Domaine des Comtes Lafon

As prices for land in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or become unaffordable, many of the region's greatest names have looked south, to Mâcon or Beaujolais, to expand their holdings. At the forefront of this movement was Dominique Lafon, who bought his estate in the Mâcon in 1999, naming it Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. Dominique makes wines here with all the care and attention that has made his Meursaults some of the world’s most highly prized wines. They’re a taste of Lafon, at very reasonable prices.
