The lowest of the Milly vines but planted on very poor, rocky soils giving intense, crisp minerally Mâcons. Clos du Four is the most mineral and least Mâcon-like of the Heritiers Lafon wines. The only wine to be aged in demi-muid only, the rest of the wines are half aged in demi-muid and half in foudres.
