Dominique Lafon is a winemaker/owner at the renowned family domaine known as Domaine des Comtes Lafon.  Starting in 2008, he decided to make a few wines under his own label, separate from the family domaine. Domaine des Comtes Lafon is one of the most esteemed and influential wine estates in Burgundy, France. The domaine was founded in the early 19th century and has been managed by several generations of the Lafon family. Renowned winemaker Dominique Lafon, who also oversees his eponymous label, has played a significant role in shaping the domaine's reputation for producing exceptional wines. The estate's vineyards are primarily located in the prestigious Côte de Beaune sub-region of Burgundy, with holdings in renowned appellations such as Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Volnay. These vineyards are characterized by their limestone-rich soils and favorable microclimates, which contribute to the unique expression of each terroir.

Domaine des Comtes Lafon is particularly acclaimed for its white wines, which are predominantly made from the Chardonnay grape variety. These wines are known for their purity, complexity, and ability to age gracefully over many years. In addition to its white wines, the domaine also produces red wines from Pinot Noir, which exhibit finesse, depth, and a distinctive Burgundian character.

Domaine des Comtes Lafon's white wines, primarily made from Chardonnay, often exhibit a combination of ripe orchard fruit flavors such as apple, pear, and peach, along with citrus notes like lemon and grapefruit. There's often a pronounced minerality, derived from the limestone-rich soils of Burgundy, contributing to a sense of freshness and complexity. Depending on the vineyard and vintage, you may also find hints of floral aromas, hazelnut, and toasted bread.  These white wines typically have excellent aging potential. Domaine des Comtes Lafon's red wines, crafted from Pinot Noir, are known for their elegance, finesse, and vibrant fruit character. You can expect a bouquet of red berries such as cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, often accompanied by floral notes like violet. These wines also display earthy and savory elements, with hints of forest floor, mushroom, and spice, adding depth and complexity to the flavor profile. While Burgundy reds generally have a shorter aging window compared to their white counterparts, Domaine des Comtes Lafon's red wines still offer significant aging potential, especially those from premier and grand cru vineyards.

Footnotes on Futures, Pre-Arrivals, and potential US Tariffs: 

1. As of June 15, 2021, the US and the EU agreed to suspend tariffs resulting from the Boeing-Airbus aircraft trade disputes. Accordingly, such import taxes are now suspended for the next five years.

2. Futures are expected to be available for delivery two years after the sales (e.g., the 2022 vintage, sold in 2023, will be delivered in 2025 mostly, or 2026 if the producer ages the wine longer).

3. Pre-Arrivals are items currently stored in our Bordeaux cellar or in transit from France to the US. It usually takes 1-6 months for Pre-Arrivals to become available for delivery, depending on the stage of the import process.

4. Regarding futures and pre-arrivals, we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates, which factors beyond our control may impact. However, we will notify you once your wine arrives in our cellar.

5. While a buyer of Bordeaux wine futures locks in an allocation of the specified items, the final delivery of the purchased items from France to the US may be impacted by intervening and unforeseeable events. Despite our due diligence, additional costs or delays may be caused by such intervening and unforeseen events and "an irresistible, superhuman cause, or by the act of public enemies of the state of California or the United States."  In such circumstances, if a buyer does not accept unforeseeable costs or delays, the sole and exclusive remedy is a cancellation of the futures order concerned and a refund of the original purchase price. We are NOT liable for any lost profits on a canceled order.
