The wines of Dominique Lafon are among the most collectible in Burgundy. Known for his world-class Meursaults, which start at $200 per bottle, Dominique became a trailblazer when he purchased high-elevation parcels in the Maconnais.
Though his Macon-Milly-Lamartine Chardonnay may be more modestly priced than his Domaine wines, they are by no means lesser in quality!
"The wine has been vinified on its own since Dominique Lafon first got involved in the Mâconnais in 1999. Situated on clay soils that mitigate the effect of hot vintages, this is wonderfully fresh and well balanced, with plenty of zip, flavors of passion fruit, and grapefruit and the faintest whisper of oak spice. Milly at its best." Tim Atkins
Dominque was the first Cote d'Or producer to invest in the immense potential of the Maconnais with his hilltop, old-vine parcels. These steep, limestone slopes are farmed organically and the wine is certified biodynamic.
This 2018 Macon-Milly-Lamartine (from arguably the best ever vintage in Burgundy), is one of Burgundy's best-kept secrets.
