Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon 2017 Viré-ClesséRegular price £29.95
Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon is Burgundy legend Dominique Lafon's trailblazing, biodynamic Mâconnais domaine. Working with old vines and farming organically and biodynamically, he makes wines from these historically under-appreciated Mâconnais sites with the same care and attention to detail he gives to his more illustrious vineyards further north. This Viré-Clessé is a wine of serious quality, offering amazing value in the context of Burgundy as a whole.
Ripe fruits with a touch of apricot. Delicate but tangy aroma. Serious wine with a depth of rich citrus and the fruit is in check by the structure: acidity and firm texture. Some lees creaminess as well as that cedary spice from the demi-muids. Concentrated and zesty. Really intense and long. Mouth-watering, too.
