Comte Lafon is one of the most famed producers of wine in Burgundy. Dominique Lafon's Meursaults are heavily sought after by collectors the world over. The winemaking is top notch, and the vineyards that he farms bio-dynamically are well cared for. They are also priced accordingly to their quality, and usually go for well over $150 a bottle.

Luckily for us back in 1999, Lafon purchased 14 hectares of land in the Mâcconais in the south of Burgundy. The Mâcon is famous for their light and not so serious Chardonnays. Seeing the potential in the area, Lafon is producing wines by the same methods he uses in his wines that he produces in the Côte d'Or. The same attention to detail means excellent wines from the villages of Chardonnay, Uchizy, Milly-Lamartine, and the area of Viré-Clessé, which he added to his collection of vineyards in 2003 with a 6 hectare purchase. Each village has its own character that makes them unique and wonderful.

I suggest them with light pork dishes, chicken or lobster. Try one for yourself, or invite your friends over for a horizontal tasting.

Pont-l'Évêque
Cow
France
$30/lb

From the lush pastures of Normandy comes one of France's greatest cheeses. Pont-l'Évêque was recognized in 1976 as having aoc status. This means Pont-l'Évêque cheese can only be made by the traditional method, and must be from the commune of Pont-l'Évêque Bas-Normadie. It is pungent and quite delicious with a little Mâcon.
