‘The wine features ripe, almost tropical aromas and a lush, dense texture on the palate. The Clos de la Crochette boasts 2.6ha of south-facing slopes in stony clay soils. This early-ripening parcel was picked in August to keep the alcohol in check, and the grapes were gently pressed and fermented on native yeasts, in a combination of large foudres and demi-muids. 2022-2035’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 92/100

‘The 2020 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette has a wonderful bouquet with fine delineation and touches of crushed rock filtering through the malic fruit. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity. Somehow playful, this is a joyful Mâconnais wine with a long saline finish. Closure: Diam. 2024-2042’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100

‘Attractive aromas of yellow orchard fruit, nectarine, white flowers and fresh pasty introduce the 2020 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette, a medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny wine with a fleshy core of fruit and a saline finish. It will drink well on release. 2022-2030’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 91/100

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!

‘Dominique Lafon’s wines are some of the world’s finest whites, hence they are also some of the most sought-after. Watch out for the Mâconnais wines which offer superb value and similar refinement.’ – Roland Peens
