2016 Viré-Clessé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Dominique’s Viré-Clessé is made up of numerous plots with vines aging up to 90 years old, with an average of 60 years old. This has gorgeous aromatics, with notes of yellow plum and greengage supported by spice and a steeliness. Everything is intense here, but in perfect balance. Outstanding.

2016 Viré-Clessé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon
Domaine des Comtes Lafon

As prices for land in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or become unaffordable, many of the region's greatest names have looked south, to Mâcon or Beaujolais, to expand their holdings. At the forefront of this movement was Dominique Lafon, who bought his estate in the Mâcon in 1999, naming it Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. Dominique makes wines here with all the care and attention that has made his Meursaults some of the world’s most highly prized wines. They’re a taste of Lafon, at very reasonable prices.
