2022 Comte Lafon Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon Macon-Villages
World-class wines aren’t always attached to the most famous zipcodes. Burgundian legend Dominique Lafon’s made wine in Meursault since the age of 26; when he began his project in the Mâcon, many assumed he’d strive to make a “baby Meursault,” or a “mini Montrachet.” Nope: he’s not seeking to make “baby” other things -- he’s striving for the pinnacle of Mâcon, a region he’s demonstrated capable of producing high-caliber wines despite it not having a fabled Côte d’Or zipcode. His 2020 has white peach & smoky mineral notes; crisp and fresh with a diamond-cut finish. Pure wow for the $.
