2018 Pouilly-Fuissé, Héritiers du Comte Lafon

From a north facing in Vergisson, this is very Côte de Beaune - you can see the line from Meursault to this wine. There’s such drive and purity, yet with a beautiful nutty, mineral finish. It’s so long - this is one to stock up on, brilliant.

2018 Pouilly-Fuissé, 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.
