Tasting notes:
‘There is an interesting hint of grilled nuts to the acacia blossom and citrusy aromas that reveal an appealing spiciness. The racier and more tightly wound medium weight flavors possess slightly better depth and persistence on the very dry but not really austere finale. Drink 2023+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89-91/100

‘The 2017 Meursault Village is lovely, offering up appealing aromas of crisp peach, pear, lemon, white flowers and a touch of praline. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with excellent cut and tension that belies its seductively textural attack.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 89 -91/100 (Jan 2019)

About Domaine des Comtes Lafon:
Domaine des Comtes Lafon built its legendary reputation on white wines. Best known as the namesake, director, and winemaker of one of the great estates of Meursault, Dominique is a descendant of Jules Lafon, who created the revered wine festival, La Paulée. Established early in the 20th century, the estate was based in Meursault originally. Thereafter, the family acquired parcels of Montrachet as well as three of the best vineyards in Volnay. After taking over the family domaine in the 80s, Dominique revitalised its red and white winemaking approach. In 1999, Dominique decided to extend the vineyard holdings to the Mâconnais appellation which now comprises of 21 ha known as Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon.
