'Blended from two parcels a bit lower on the slope, but still in sight of the Saône. The early-ripening site delivered fruit with up to 13.5% potential alcohol and a pH around 3.20 – eminently correct. The wine is fermented in large, upright oak casks on native yeasts and delivers ripe apple fruit and a hint of spice. Rich and approachable, this is made for early drinking. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029.' – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 91/100 (Oct 2020)

'The 2019 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches wafts from the glass with aromas of musky peach, citrus fruit, white flowers and pear. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's bright but gourmand, concluding with a long, saline finish. Drink 2021-2031.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 90/100 (Aug 2021)

'Ripe, this offers spice apple, melon and butterscotch flavors allied to a broad profile. It's fresh and harmonious, with a light tactile feel on the finish. Drink now through 2024.' – Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 90/100

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!
