Heritiers du Comte Lafon, 2018 Mâcon-Chardonnay, Clos de la Crochette
The word in this area is that this walled vineyard, located in the village of Chardonnay, could very well be one of the first vineyards planted with this illustrious varietal by the monks of nearby Cluny in the 10-11th century. One stroll through this site is enough to confirm that it is very special. Perfectly sloped, with just the right balance of limestone and clay, the Chardonnay grape seems perfectly at home here.
Just the right balance of richness, minerals and fresh fruit aromatics come together in this wine. This is a classic styled Chardonnay that leaves most others behind.
