For 'a bargain way to experience Dominique Lafon’s magic touch,' as per Jancis Robinson, we recommend Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon’s wines. Dominique Lafon's talented on-site winemaker in the Mâconnais, Caroline Gon, enthusiastically noted that 2018 is an 'outstanding vintage that gave us superb fruit to work with.'

Biodynamically and organically produced, Lafon’s wines are pure, powerful and very precise. They show incredible depth, a mineral vein and bright acidity that keeps them fresh for years to come.

Tasting notes:
'Discreet wood and matchstick influences frame pretty aromas of apple and citrus. There is excellent volume to the intense and attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess even better depth and persistence on the dry but not austere finale. This too is well-worth checking out. Drink 2023+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89-91/100

'The 2018 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette is showing nicely, offering up a pretty bouquet of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, blanched almonds and mint. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and incisive, it's precise and mineral, with bright acids, a delicate core of fruit and chalky grip on the finish. Drink 2020-2030.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 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!.
