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:
'Wafting from the glass with aromas of mandarin orange, citrus blossom and fresh peach, the 2018 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches is medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit and a charming, seamless profile. As usual, some muscaté selections of Chardonnay make themselves felt. Drink 2020-2030.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 90/100

'There is a touch of the exotic in the form of muscat and lychee nut to the pear liqueur scents. Once again there is fine volume to the intense, dense and almost muscular flavors that also terminate in a bone dry and chiseled finale. Worth checking out. Drink 2022+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 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!.
