About Heritiers du Comte Lafon

Dominique Lafon is considered one of the finest winemakers in France. Since 1985, he has been managing his family winery in Meursault, the world-renowned Domaine des Comtes Lafon. But in 1999, Dominique saw potential in a region that no other Cote d’Or winemaker had paid any attention to.  He purchased 14 hectares of vines in the Maconnais and today Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon is one of the most well-respected producers in the region.

Dominique saw an opportunity to do what no one else was: focus on quality in an area of Burgundy that was largely industrially farmed. After purchasing several excellent hillside parcels, Dominique began to farm by the same methods he did in Meursault. Each one of the vineyards was converted to organic and biodynamic farming, focusing on intense soil rejuvenation. The grapes are hand harvested and the wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts.

In 2006, Dominique appointed long time apprentice Caroline Gon as head winemaker and together they manage every aspect of the viticulture. The domaine now spans 26 hectares and includes additional parcels in Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé. Their continued focus on quality and sustainability has led to Héritiers du Comte Lafon producing some of the most outstanding wines in the region.

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
