A rich, supple red, with pure cherry, floral and earth tones backed by a well-integrated structure. Just a bit firm on the finish now, with a long, mineral aftertaste. Should come together soon.
|Dominique Lafon is considered to be one of the best winemakers in France, making some of the most coveted white Burgundies that exist from the Cote de Beaune and the Maconnais. Though he is best known for his work with the family domaines, Domaine des Comtes Lafon and LHeritiers du Comtes Lafon, he began producing his own label (separate from his family) beginning in 2008. His new project (4.5ha in total) may have the official status of a negociant, but the wines are from vineyards which Dominique owns or farms and bottled on a separate estate (just down the street from Comtes Lafon). The vineyards are farmed with the same principles of organics and biodynamics as Comte Lafon and are vinified with the same care and attention to quality that spurred Dominiques reputation in the region and around the world.
