Profile: Domaine Comtes-Lafon

[ Burgundy – France ]


Dominique took over the estate from his father, Rene in 1984 and since then he’s never looked back. His attractive maverick character endears him to fellow growers and clients alike. His winemaker tastings and dinners are frequently punctuated with highly amusing stories of his daily pursuits in and around the estate. Today the domain consists of nearly 14 hectares of prime Burgundy vineyards, covering 5 villages and 13 appellations. Since 1998 all the vineyards are managed under biodynamic cultivation. The wines range from the tense, edgy and hugely attractive Montrachet and Puligny to the elegant warmth and generosity of his Meursault wines. The reds are infinitely stylish and energetic.  |  Reviews & Tasting Notes
