About

Product Description:

“I didn’t wish to vinify at Domaine des Comtes Lafon as I wanted to try to keep a distinct separation between the two. With Dominique Lafon I can build on what I learn, I can afford to experiment etc. I am constantly learning. If I had to define the style of the DL wines, I would say that the wines have a bit more tension than the wines of Domaine des Comtes Lafon. The élevage on the DL wines is shorter and the plots are mostly located on the upper part of the hillsides, which gives the wines an interesting minerality and tension.” – Dominique Lafon

"Always searching for new challenges, Dominique Lafon started his own label - separate from the family domaine - in 2008 and currently works approximately 4.5 hectares in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Volnay, and Beaune. Legally, the DL brand has négociant status but this is only because Dominique shares space with a négociant. He only very rarely buys grapes.

The wines are vinified, aged, and bottled at the Château de Bligny where Dominique and his colleagues also operate a custom crush facility for a number of small-scale winemakers.

Dominique is particularly excited about his three Beaune terroirs, which he has always seen as somewhat undervalued. With the skyrocketing price of land in other Côte de Beaune appellations, now is the time to invest in Beaune." - Importer
