Comtes Lafon, 'Santenots-du-Milieu' Premier Cru Volnay 1982

$475
Domaine des Comtes Lafon, or simply Lafon, has been a revered domaine in Burgundy for more than 150 years. But when Dominique assumed the reins at the estate in 1985, he took things to another level. He has cultivated an extraordinary collection of biodynamic vineyards - including plots in every Premier Cru in Meursault - to make wines that have become benchmarks for all of Burgundy.

'Santenots-du-Milieu' is a Premier Cru located in Meursault, but because this is red, Lafon decides to label it with the adjacent village of Volnay. While Volnay wines are known for their aromatics and elegance rather than overt power, this wine has richness and depth that has allowed it to age for 40 years and counting.
