‘Perhaps the finest site for Lafon in the Mâconnais and a reference for the region. This lower-elevation vineyard at mid-slope has delivered ripe apple aromas with rich notes of cream and butter, and accents of acacia and flint. On the palate it feels richer than many this year, with medium body, balanced acidity and a lush, ripe fruit character. It will not disappoint fans of this vineyard. 2022-2040’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 94/100

‘The 2021 Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine has a slightly resinous bouquet, sultry at first but opens with time. The palate is well balanced with a tangy entry and a very slight touch of VA towards the finish that gives it a pleasant kick. A charmer. 2023-2028’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 89/100

‘A touch more colour and slightly softer and richer. Less frosted here so this is normal if a bit down in volume. A more classical grapey style. Lively and fresh on the palate, apples and pears, with some length. 2023-2025.’ – Jasper Morris, MW, Inside Burgundy

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
