The dexterous hands at Domaine des Comtes Lafon navigated these conditions to give us a harmonious expression that encapsulates not just the resilience, but the triumph of their terroir.

The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes presents an aromatic kaleidoscope that begins with acacia flowers and golden orchard fruit before diving into deeper pools of honeyed brioche and toasted hazelnuts.
