The 2013 vintage was another very difficult vintage to manage, with a heavily reduced crop after the hail, but unlike in 2012 Dominique has at least been able to make all his appellations. The wines were at a backward stage when tasted in October but with really exciting potential.

2012 is the fifth vintage of Dominique Lafon’s own private domaine. As elsewhere quantities are tiny – indeed we shall have no Premier Cru Volnay Les Lurets to offer this year, as the small production has gone back to the owners to cover their fixed rent according to the fermage agreement. We only have a handful of cases of the other wines, excepting the superb Bourgogne Blanc, which escaped the hail. We anticipate a redesigned label for the 2012 vintage.

The former Domaine René Manuel has been purchased by investors, the vineyards being split between Domaine des Comtes Lafon and Domaine Roulot while Dominique Lafon himself has moved production of his own label wines to the Manuel cellars in Meursault, as well as gaining some Bourgogne Blanc vines. Though Dominique operates officially under the status of negociant, all the wines are domaine grown and bottled except the Bourgogne Blanc, which will be next year.
