It is located in Meursault in the Côte de Beaune subregion, but has vineyards in three other villages: Chassagne-Montrachet, Volnay and Monthélie. Comtes Lafon's house and cellar were built in 1869 by the Boch family, but its reputation as a winery was most heavily influenced by Jules Lafon, who married Marie Boch in 1894. Lafon bought many of the significant premier cru plots in Meursault and Volnay, and in 1919, parcels in the grand cru Le Montrachet vineyard. Domaine des Comtes Lafon saw an extended period of sharecropping after Jules Lafon's death and the future of the estate became uncertain. It was Jules' grandson René Lafon who took an interest in the winery and fought to stop the division of the vineyards – a move that secured the future of the domaine. Despite René's intervention, many of the lease agreements with the sharecroppers remained in place for decades. Comtes Lafon was making highly regarded whites in many vintages but without consistency.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-13T16:58:53-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-12T09:47:47-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","Other_Wine","Producer_Domaine des Comtes Lafon","Region_Volnay Santenots","RK1201","Source_CanaWine0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Pinot Noir"],"price":499999,"price_min":499999,"price_max":499999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42676635107466,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1999 | Domaine des Comtes Lafon | Volnay Santenots du Milieu 1er Cru (Magnum)","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":499999,"weight":19051,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/13_3b165551-de5e-440e-89fa-907b32036e09.png?v=1673534960"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/13_3b165551-de5e-440e-89fa-907b32036e09.png?v=1673534960","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1999 | Domaine des Comtes Lafon | Volnay Santenots du Milieu 1er Cru (Magnum)","id":23960099029130,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.379,"height":522,"width":198,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/13_3b165551-de5e-440e-89fa-907b32036e09.png?v=1673534960"},"aspect_ratio":0.379,"height":522,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/13_3b165551-de5e-440e-89fa-907b32036e09.png?v=1673534960","width":198}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1999 | Domaine des Comtes Lafon | Volnay Santenots du Milieu 1er Cru (Magnum)\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eExpressive aromas of black cherry, dark berries and chocolate.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Domaine des Comtes Lafon\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\" mce-data-marked=\"1\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 90  \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eVN\u003c\/span\u003e | 92\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage: \u003c\/b\u003e1999\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 1.5L\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 13%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Pinot Noir\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Volnay Santenots\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eExpressive aromas of black cherry, dark berries and chocolate.

        Reviews:

        • James Suckling: Tannic, but here is a modern-style Pinot--dark in color, extracted, showing masses of fruit and tannins, with beautiful focus on black and red fruits and spicy notes. Time should soften it.
        • Vinous: Very healthy dark color with just a hint of browning at the edge. Expressive aromas of black cherry, dark berries and chocolate. Seriously sweet and thick but in a distinctly powerful style, conveying a medicinal quality to its very ripe plum, dark cherry and mint flavors. The big tannins saturate the mouth and teeth.
