Les Heritiers du Comte LAFON Macon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette 2010
Comtes Lafon is considered the best domaine in Meursault, with 14 hectare in Cotes de Beaune
In 1999, Dominique Lafon (current winemaker) purchased additional 14 hectare in Maconnais, a area that he feels has great potential but under appreciated
Applying the same vigor (biodynamic viticulture, yield control, green harvesting), he now produces one of the best Chardonnay from that region
Our selection is from Clos de la Crochette, probably the oldest chardonnay growing site in the world
Excellent quality at a fraction of the price of Lafon's Meursault, plus you can drink immediately, what do you say?
Burghound: 88-91 "A very fresh nose of high-toned lemon rind, white flower and pear aromas complements well the racy, intense and beautifully well-detailed flavors that possess lovely underlying tension on the balanced, dry, clean and solidly persistent finish. This is lovely and there is clearly better material here." (Oct 2011)
