Domaine Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon Macon Clos de la Crochette 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Maconnais|
|Brand||Domaine Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon|
This is considered to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, chardonnay growing site in the world. Located in the village where the Cluny monks first planted the varietal, this is the finest vineyard in the area. The perfect mix of clay and limestone combined with a medium steep slope and good eastern exposure, you can really feel the history here as you walk the vineyard. The resulting wine is very poised and possesses that perfect balance of crisp acidity, good mineral backbone and a very intense, long mouth-feel. The fruit shows both ripe apples and citrus with just a little spice.
Attractive aromas of yellow orchard fruit, nectarine, white flowers and fresh pasty introduce the 2020 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette, a medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny wine with a fleshy core of fruit and a saline finish. It will drink well on release.
