2018 Viré-Clessé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

From 12 different parcels, with the youngest 40 years old, and a lot at 80 years old, Caroline is very careful of the date of harvest here. This is floral and delicate, with such energy and complexity. Amazing in 2018.

2018 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.
