2017 Mâcon Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

The Clos de la Crochette were the very first vines planted in the area, and so have been under vine for over a thousand years., no doubt due to the area’s propensity to ripen quickly even in the coolest vintages. Just 2.2 hectares in size, this is explosive and very long.

2017 Mâcon Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette, 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.
