The vineyard has an ideal southern exposure, here are the most coveted in the world of white wines exclusively from Chardonnay - King White Burgundy wines. The plot is owned by Domaine des Comtes Lafon, is small, only 0.32 hectares. Vines planted in 1953 and 1972. Exposure - south, soils are dark, deep and rocky, are made rich, balanced wine with great potential.

1997 saw early maturing crop. The summer was warm and dry fruits have reached the necessary maturity perfectly healthy, thick-skinned. Chardonnay Pinot matured later. The harvest began on 11 September. For the production of Montrachet Grand Cru in the Domaine de Comte Lafon selected the best grapes, gentle pressing lasts about 3 hours, then the juice settles in the cold in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats at a temperature of 12 ° C, after 24 hours of juice is separated from the pellet and placed in the new or previously used barrels.

Although for over a century estate Comtes Lafon is part of the Burgundian history, it takes its origins in the south-west of France, more specifically, in the Tarn and Garonne. In 1864, in Valence-sur-Agen (Valence-sur-Agen) was born Jules Joseph Barthelemy Lafon. His father Charles Lafon was registrar of land rights in the area, and later in the Pyrenees. Jules finished his studies and joined the State registration office, where in 1887 he was appointed inspector.
In 1894, Jules married Marie Bock, whose family was engaged in the sale of wine and had an estate in Meursault. In 1923, as mayor of Meursault, Jules Lafon revives the tradition of celebrating the completion of the harvest in the vineyards. And also for the owners of wine estates and workers, he invited his friends to a banquet, so was born the famous festival «Paulée de Meursault». In 1931, Jules devotes itself exclusively to the estate. Jules Lafont was not in 1940, it was an extremely interesting person, his hobbies included collecting art -gravyur, tapestries, furniture, coins and medals. Being highly intelligent, he had a large library, was a traveler and lover of adventure.
The estate that exists today, was largely based Jules Lafon and it is important to distinguish between sites, inherited from Marie Bock (many of which have been sold) from those that were purchased or expanded. Land inherited from Marie Bock: Montel - Le Dyures, Clos De La Bar, Volnay-Shampan, Volnay Santa du Miglio.
Land Acquisition: Montrachet (1918), Le Good d'Or, Le Zhenevrer-Dessus, Perrer Le, Le Volnay-Santno, Clos de Shen, of the Le Charm.
In 1944, after the death of Pierre Lafont, Henri Lafont decided to sell the estate, which already at that time was leased Cropper. But the son of Henri Rene, who at that time lived and worked in Paris, was against the idea. Rene interest in winemaking and viticulture forced him to leave Paris and move to Meursault. He took over the reins of the estate in 1956, significantly increasing the production of wine.

In 1984, at the head of the estate becomes Dominique Lafon and his brother Bruno. In 1987, they stop to take vineyards Cropper. Since then, the estate of 13.8 hectares is used exclusively Domaine de Comte Lafon. Currently run by the descendants of Jules Domain Lafont, Cherishing great legacy.
