Founded in 1999 by Dominique Lafon, Héritiers du Comte Lafon is his trailblazing, certified organic & biodynamic Mâconnais domaine. Historically, the Mâconnais was known for industrially farmed, volume driven wines. Dominique was the first Cote d’Or producer to invest in the immense potential here, buying higher altitude, old vine parcels with the intention of letting this terroir reach its full potential. He started by converting all of the vineyards to biodynamic farming.
Since the beginning, he has strived to preserve the fruit and minerality of the region by using only larger, neutral wood for the aging of the wines. The result is wines with crisp acidity, good mineral backbone and a very intense, long mouth-feel.
