The Wine

From the sub-zone of Milly where the wines tend to be very mineral and taut, this is Lafon's highest Mâcon vineyard at an altitude of 350 meters.

The high altitude and cool mircoclimate of the Clos du Four vineyard meant that it was almost completely spared from the frost, yielding a foudre and four 600-litre demi-muids. There is a delightful flinty struck match reduction on the nose, plenty of weighty white fruit and ripe citrus on the palate, and a cleansing, saline finish. A wine of real sophistication. Drink 2024-2030. BBR

About the Wine Maker

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon was established in 1999 when the famed Lafon family of Meursault purchased a small domaine in Milly-Lamartine. Their enthusiasm for the project has grown ever since, as has the domaine: today it covers 26 hectares in the most prestigious appellations of the Mâconnais, all farmed biodynamically. The estate is overseen by the energetic Caroline Gon, in close consultation with Dominique Lafon. (From) The 2020 vintage sees the increased involvement of Dominique’s daughter Léa and nephew Pierre, both taking a keen interest in the Mâconnais project. Caroline continues to run the estate on a day-to-day basis, putting Dominique’s vision into practice. Vinification and ageing continue to move towards larger oak formats, with increased use of foudres and demi-muids. The team recognise the profile of Mâcon wines as being more generous and fruitier than those of the Côte d’Or. So their aim is to retain as much freshness as possible, and not to impart too much oak character. Berry Bros and Rudd –
