The younger son of René Lafon, of Domaine Comte-Lafon in Meursault, Bruno grew up in a world of renowned vineyards and spectacular wine. But, on a trip to visit some friends in the south of France, Bruno discovered a sprawling property in the backcountry of the Languedoc that changed his life forever. The soil was incredibly mineral, laden with sandstone and shale. Just 30 km from the Mediterranean, set at 600 ft in elevation and containing some of oldest vines in the region, Bruno saw unlimited potential for making Chateauneuf-du-Pape styled red and white wines. He knew that this unique combination of ancient vines, mineral soil, elevation and proximity to the sea could produce not only fabulously concentrated fruit but aromatically complex and elegant wines that would satisfy any Burgundian.
His rare white wine is a fabulously complex blend of Grenache and Roussanne that brings a unique kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors that are dynamite at any Thanksgiving table. It’s an aromatic fireworks show, just blasting from the glass with anise and mint-scented green apple and white flowers. The Langeudoc Blanc is medium bodied, with a silky mouthfeel and a fine, elegant finish that is both long and mineral.
Like all of Bruno’s wines, it’s a Tuesday nighter with an almost Saturday night-level complexity and for sure, a Saturday night level of distinction and rarity.
