Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon 2017 Viré-Clessé
- 11 in stock
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.
