Héritiers du Comte Lafon is a trailblazing biodynamic domaine founded in 1999 by Dominque Lafon. In his world class Chardonnays, Lafon perfectly demonstrates the kinds of winds this region is capable of producing. In the past, the Mâconnais was known for its industrially farmed, volume driven wines.

Dominique Lafon was the first Cote d’Or producer to really invest in the hidden potential of these rolling hills. He bought higher altitude, old vine parcels with the goal of letting this beautiful clay-limestone terroir reach its full potential. The first step was to convert all of the vineyards to biodynamic farming. Lafon insisted on preserving the fruit and minerality of the region, and did so by using only larger, neutral wood for aging of wines.  Héritiers is now a towering example of fine wine in this previously overlooked Chardonnay mecca. In 2006, he appointed longtime apprentice, Caroline Gon, as head winemaker of the domaine. Under her inspired leadership, quality Mâconnais wine is spreading throughout this region, with a clearer and more definitive voice.
