Super 2014 Macon from Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon

 
Lafon Macon Header
Quality Chardonnay from a Prestigious Burgundy name
 
In 1999 the Lafon family, famous for their wines of Meursault, purchased a property in Maconnais renaming it Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon. The following decade saw the domaine expand adding numerous hand selected sites. 

The know-how of Dominique Lafon, biodynamic farming and the quality of the vineyards has made the wines very popular with Burgundy lovers.

The 2014's are, as in the Cote d'Or, quite brilliant and these wines are certainly worth a taste.

Lafon Macon Crochette
Vinous Stephen Tanzer: 
(from 2.5 hectares of vines planted in the 1980s on the second hill in from the Saône; Lafon purchased this vineyard along with the Uchizy acreage in 2003; half in foudres and half in demi-muids): Bright yellow. Pear, licorice and flowers on the nose, plus a subtle crushed-rock nuance. Lovely elegant, fine-grained wine with good palate presence and ripe acidity to its flavors of sweet pear, peach and citrus fruits; chewy and saline but also smooth and refined, with the strong clay element in the soil contributing to the wine's structure. Lemony acidity keeps the wine light on its feet. Melts into the palate in a sake-like way and finishes with very good length. This Clos ripens very quickly at the end and is now harvested in just one and a half days, noted Gon. Remarkable for its humble appellation.

You can't go past Chablis for value for money.
And in a tremendous vintage like 2014 the wines are even better value.
Our stocks are declining daily but we still have quite a nice selection available.
