‘Lafon owns two parcels in the lieu-dit Les Maranges in Uchizy. The 2021 vintage uses grapes from these two hectares, supplemented by other plots in the village. The grapes are lightly crushed and run into large foudres for fermentation and ageing. The result has ripe tropical fruit with notes of passionfruit and tamarind. The texture is supple and round and shows more density and length than others in the cellar this year. 2023-2035’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 92/100

'Mid lemon. Lovely, bright, fresh, clean nose of lemon and apple. White flowers give a little extra lift with solid peachy fruit on the palate. Very dry finish. 2025-2030' – Matthew Hayes, JancisRobinson.com, 16/20

‘The 2021 Mâcon Uchizy is a blend of vineyards within the climat (i.e. not Les Maranches) as the northern sector lost 90% of volume due to frost. It has a lilting orchard fruit, apricot-tinged bouquet with a spring in its step. The palate is well balanced with good depth, substance, fine acidity and a spicy, persistent finish. Excellent. 2023-2030’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91/100

‘Maranches and En Massa together. Pale lemon colour. The nose is a little stricter than Bussières, which is normal, a little more chiselled. A suggestion of salinity even on the nose. Builds well to the back with some attractive fresh citrus notes, a little lime blossom. 2023-2026’ – Jasper Morris, 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
