Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon, Mâcon Bussières, 2022

A wine of deeper complexity and fuller body than your average Macon. This really is like a mini Pouilly-Fuisse. Fleshy and characterful, notes of mineral and rock complimenting the bodied, buttery citrus and stone fruit. From vines at the southern end of Mâconnais planted on rocky soils, at 350 metres altitude, well exposed to the sun.

13%

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Dominique Lafon had been eyeing land and property in the Maconnais for some time before he eventually bought some cellars and vineyards around the village of Milly. Here he recognised an opportunity to produce fine wine, terroir-rich, wines that would not cost the earth. The quality and attention to detail is the same here as it is at the Domaine des Comtes Lafon estate in Meursault. Farming is biodynamic, fermentation is in tank plot by plot, and ageing is tailored to each terroir, in a mixture of steel tanks, wooden foudres, and demi-muid oak casks. Dominique has a wonderful spread of vines at his disposal from accross the region, showing how diverse and interesting the Maconnais can be. From the old vines of Viré-Clessé producing floral, expressive wines to the more mineral intensity of Macon-Milly, and the racy and intense en Chatenay Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard of Vergisson.
