From 2008 Dominique Lafon decided to make a few wines under his own label, separate from the family domaine (Domaine des Comtes Lafon). Though this new company has the official status of a negociant, almost all the wines are in fact domaine bottlings from vineyards which Dominique either owns or has the contract to farm. The wines are now vinified, matured and bottled at the Chateau de Bligny, where Dominique and colleagues also operate a custom crush facility for small-scale winemakers who do not have their own winery. The whites begin with Bourgogne Blanc (from 2010), village Meursault from La Petite Montagne which formerly went into the Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault blend, a single vineyard Meursault les Narvaux (from 2010) and a small premier cru holding of Puligny-Montrachet, Champgain. Some 2008 Viré-Clessé has been replaced from 2009 by a cuvée of St-Véran. The reds are a village Volnay and premier cru Les Lurets. The reds are a village Volnay and premiers crus Volnay, Les Lurets and Beaune Les Epenottes. The Dominique Lafon label is exclusive to Berry Bros. & Rudd in the UK, Hong Kong and Japan.
