'Mingling aromas of citrus rind and peach with nuances of paraffin wax, blanched almonds and white flowers, the 2017 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette is medium to full-bodied, satiny-textured and charming, with good concentration and chalky extract, girdled by lively acids. This is another fine bottling from a very successful vintage for the Héritiers du Comte Lafon. Drink 2020-2033.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘Firm reduction is all that can be discerned today. On the palate the borderline tender middleweight flavors that possess fine mid-palate volume though the finish is decidedly less complex and persistent. This is nicely refined. Drink 2019+’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 86-89/100

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!.
