2018 Mâcon Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Dominique bought the estate for this 2.5ha clos, planted in 1980 but with a history dating back centuries. This is so mealy, with apples and limes and salinity and length. This makes your lips tingle on the finish: incredible, true Chardonnay.

2018 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.
