Description

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.

Tasting Notes

The 2020 Saint-Véran has a fragrant bouquet with orange blossom, Golden Delicious and light crushed rock aromas. The palate is strict and linear, well balanced and lightly spiced with a nicely poised finish. Drink over the next five years. Closure: Diam. [89 points – Neal Martin – Dec 2021 – vinous.com]
