This vintage has not been rated yet, see previous vintage note:

‘Very agreeable, ripe apple fruit, with a soft, approachable texture on the palate. This entry-level wine from Lafon’s Mâcon operation is blended from all of its parcels, including site in Uchizy, Viré, Chardonnay and Bussières. The fruit is gently pressed and fermented in large, upright oak casks and briefly aged before being bottled. It is the same work as the rest of the range - certified organic with biodynamic principles - but the volumes are larger here. 2021-2029’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 91/100

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!

‘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
