Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon


This is a sequel to the story of living legend "Comtes LAFON" in Meursault. Dominique Lafon bet himself to the Terroir of Macon and it was totally correct. What a lucky for wine lovers! We can enjoy the essence of top white wine producer's wine making with daily wine prices. It is not cheap wine - it is ridiculously modest priced wine.

Leading Meursault producer Dominique Lafon was the first leading light of the Côte d'Or to take white Mâcon so seriously that he set up shop there - buying an existing domaine in the folds of the western hills in Milly-Lamartine way back in 1999. Four years later, more but different, earlier-ripening, vineyard land was added to the domaine so that today Héritiers du Comte Lafon are able to make substantial quantities of three wines, Mâcon, Mâcon-Villages and Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine, supplemented by five different single-vineyard bottlings, each with their own very distinct character.(Jancis Robinson)
