'The 2019 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette is especially good this year, mingling aromas of fresh bread and crisp orchard fruit with hints of drawn butter and almonds. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and textural, with excellent cut and a long, saline finish, it's well worth seeking out. Drink 2021-2035.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100 (Aug 2021)

'This site in the village of Chardonnay is nearly 3ha in size and the grapes ripen quickly in the thin clay soils, with limestone pebbles. It has yielded a wine with lovely, ripe apple aromas, with a floral edge and a texture on the palate that balances the substance with a lively freshness. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029.' – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 92/100 (Oct 2020)

'Very pretty and nicely married but a little fatter than the Uchizy. Acid on the end. Not that long. Drink 2021-2024.' – Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com, 16+/20 (Oct 2020)

Producer information Considered one of the finest winemakers in France, Meursault-God Dominique Lafon bought property in the Mâcon in 1999. He believed strongly in the region, but felt that too few vignerons had attempted to realise its full potential. Thus, in the very same spirit that he runs his renowned Meursault domaine, Dominique utilises biodynamic viticulture, intense soil rejuvenation, tight yield control and rigorous green harvesting in the Mâcon. Ageing occurs in a mixture of steel tanks, wooden foudres, and demi-muid oak casks, and he produces some of the most complex, vibrant and impressive wines the region has ever seen!
