‘Usually, this wine is a single-vineyard bottling from Le Monsart, which has a similar terroir to parts of Pouilly-Fuissé. Due to weather-related losses, however, the 2021 vintage includes grapes from other plots in Bussières that generally would have served for Mâcon-Villages. There is a surprisingly ripe apple fruit aroma with floral notes and a bit of hazelnut. The ripeness comes from more southern exposures and lower elevation than what is found in Milly-Lamartine. 2023-2035’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 93/100

‘The 2021 Mâcon-Bussières, a blend of different parcels, has a strict and more focused nose compared to the other cuvées. Airy with Granny Smiths and pear. The palate is well balanced with a tangy, marmalade and pear-tinged opening, spicy, almost Rhône-like towards the finish with plenty of extract. Very fine. 2023-2029’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 88/100

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
