Héritiers du Comte Lafon, Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches 750ml 2017France, Burgundy
Domaine des Comtes Lafon built its legendary reputation on white wines. Best known as the namesake, director, and winemaker of one of the great estates of Meursault, Dominique is a descendant of Jules Lafon, who created the revered wine festival, La Paulée. Established early in the 20th century, the estate was based in Meursault originally. Thereafter, the family acquired parcels of Montrachet as well as three of the best vineyards in Volnay. After taking over the family domaine in the 80s, Dominique revitalised its red and white winemaking approach. In 1999, Dominique decided to extend the vineyard holdings to the Mâconnais appellation which now comprises of 21 ha known as Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon.
‘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
‘This was bottled only one week before I sampled it and not surprisingly the nose is dominated by sulfur and reduction. More interesting are the caressing yet punchy middleweight flavors that are generously proportioned while delivering fine length on the balanced finish. Once the sulfur is integrated, this well-made effort should offer very fine quality for its level that will also drink well in its youth. Drink 2019+’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89/100
