SKU: 31590 Categories: ,


The 20157 Macon Bussiere le Monsard has an engaging bouquet with scents of Granny Smith apples, sea spray and wet limestone, very detailed and expressive. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, vibrant and tensile, with an outstanding sense of precision on the finish. What a fabulous wine.

Winemaking Approach





Producer Information: Domaine Comtes Lafon

Without question, Dominique Lafon is the leading producer in Meursault, producing wines of astonishing depth and complexity, yet supremely balanced as well. When Lafon took over the Domaine in 1983, most of his vineyards were leased out on a share-cropping basis. It was only towards the end of the 80s that he managed to reclaim all the vineyards and thus have full responsibility for them.

Nowadays the vineyards are run on a biodynamic basis with no use of herbicides or chemical sprays. All the whites are barrel fermented and then aged in Lafon's deep, damp and cold cellars for 20 months. The wines are bottled unfiltered. This is the very pinnacle of white burgundy with superlative fruit, power, complexity and total harmony being the wines' hallmarks. The reds are first class as well.
