'This 1.3ha site is perhaps the best of the Lafon holdings in the Maconnais.The east-facing vines are located in the middle of the slope, in a semicircle, just outside the village. Fermented and aged for nearly one year in casks, showing great elegance and breed, with a firm citrus underpinning the ripe apple fruit. The texture on the palate is rich and dense, but adequately balanced by crisp acidity. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029.' – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 93/100 (Oct 2020)

'This white is round and rich, offering peach, apple, lemon and light saline flavors. Shows intensity and balance, persisting on the finish with both fruit and spice accents. Drink now through 2024.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 91/100 (Aug 2021)

'The 2019 Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine wafts from the glass with notes of pear, fresh bread, citrus zest, warm biscuits and light reduction. Medium to full-bodied, ample and lively, with a pretty core of fruit and a saline finish, it was matured two-thirds in foudre, one-third in demi muids. Drink 2021-2031.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 89/100 (Aug 2021)

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!
