Exceptional Meursaults

The treasures of the Côte de Beaune arrived at Mes Bourgognes Beaune this week. We are proud to present the latest vintage from one of Meursault's most emblematic winegrowers: Dominique Lafon.

Dominique Lafon took over the family estate from his father in 1984. He is a principled winegrower, fundamentally attached to the land, to quality and respect for the soil, but also to the traditions inherited from his ancestors. Dominique Lafon is one of the pioneers of biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy, first experimenting with it in 1995 before converting his entire 16-hectare estate to biodynamic viticulture in 1998. And, of course, the results are there for all to see.

Dominique Lafon is also renowned for perpetuating the Burgundy tradition in winemaking, but in a very refined style where the aim is always to let the terroirs and the vines speak for themselves, after months of pampering by himself and his team. To achieve this, no forced extraction or body-built aging, Dominique favors aging on lees and plays wonderfully on reduction to produce straight, stretched and precise wines.

When it comes to ageing, it's with the same rigor and experience acquired over many vintages that he works to give power, intensity and depth to his wines, particularly his splendid Premier Crus. Dominique's Meursault wines express their terroirs with moving precision.

In view of the demand on this domain, we have had to implement a quota rule to allow as many people as possible to benefit from it. Thank you for respecting this rule and therefore not multiplying your ordersAny order that does not respect the quota rules will be cancelled by right.
