2018 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

A two hectare plot, with one hectare of old vines, planted in 1965. Ripe and intense, with apricot and also a touch of rose petal. A south facing site, it’s early to be picked, but is well managed, and has incredible depth without being overblown.

2018 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches, 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.
