Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon was established in 1999 when the famed Lafon family of Meursault purchased a small domaine in Milly-Lamartine.
Their enthusiasm for the project has grown ever since, as has the domaine: today it covers 26 hectares in the most prestigious appellations of the Mâconnais, all farmed biodynamically.
The estate is overseen by the energetic Caroline Gon, in close consultation with Dominique Lafon. The 2020 vintage sees the increased involvement of Dominique’s daughter Léa and nephew Pierre, both taking a keen interest in the Mâconnais project.
The 2019 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches wafts from the glass with aromas of musky peach, citrus fruit, white flowers and pear. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it’s bright but gourmand, concluding with a long, saline finish. [90 Points, William Kelley – August 2021, robertparker.com]
