Domaine Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon Mâcon Milly Lamartine Clos du Four 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Maconnais|
|Brand||Domaine Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon|
This is the prized vineyard in the village of Milly located in a steep ampitheater directly behind Lafon's winery. Much of the fruit here goes into the village Milly bottling with just the old vines in the heart of the vineyard, having best exposure, going into this cuvée. Very mineral with great length, this wine's richness comes out only after at least a year in bottle. The fruit is classic Mâcon styled with tinges of citrus that give a hint of it's potential to age at least 5-7 years.
The 2020 Macon-Lilly-Lamartine Clos du Four was bottled just before the harvest. Lovely tangerine, citrus peel and pressed yellow flower scents on the nose, the palate opens nicely with impressive concentration, fine acidity and veins of stem ginger towards the persistent, Muscat-tinged finish. Excellent. Closure: Diam.
