Domaine des Comtes Lafon, an illustrious property of Côte de Beaune
The Domaine des Comtes Lafon originated in 1894 when Jules Lafon married Marie Boch whose family was owner and merchant in Meursault. After she passed away in 1940, the future of the wine property was uncertain. Indeed, her sons, Pierre and Henri, were not that interested in wine. Moreover, due to Pierre’s brutal death, Henri was willing to sell the property. But René, his nephew, stood up against the destruction of the vineyard. And after several years of share cropping, René Lafon took over the vineyard in 1956 by partnering with the tenant farmers. Then, in 1984, his son Dominique succeeded him and decided to progressively get rid of the share cropping. Since 1993, the 13,80 hectares vineyard is fully and exclusively used by the Domaine.
A vineyard grown in accordance with soil and biodynamics principles
Nowadays, the wine property spreads on about 16 hectares distributed over 4 communes and gather the most renowned crus of the region. Overall, fifteen appellations are produced in Meursault, Volnay, Monthélie et Chassagne-Montrachet. Since Dominique took over the vineyard, the Domaine des Comtes Lafon has fostered an ecologically friendly viticulture. Weeding was then abandoned, the grapes were tilled and an Organic Agriculture label was even claimed in 1995. Fertilizers were also banished and replaced by compost amendments. In addition, manual harvest was adopted. Dominique Lafon is one meticulous man and relies on biodynamics to produce high-end dense and delicate wines.
