Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé is a biodynamic, barrel-aged white wine made by Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon in Burgundy (France) with the Chardonnay variety.
Following in the footsteps of her father, Dominique Lafon founded Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon in 1999 at a time when Mâcon wines, from southern Burgundy, were known for their high volume production. But through this winemaker’s hard work, both in the vineyard and in the winery, she has managed to change the area’s reputation and her wines have gained the international recognition they deserve.
Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé comes from 6 hectares planted between 1950 and 1990. These vines lie 200 metres above sea level and are planted on clay and calcareous soil. The team works with organic agriculture, using biodynamic treatments, and before the grape reaches optimum ripeness, it is harvested manually.
Once the Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé grapes have been selected, they are pressed and begin fermentation at a low temperature with native yeasts. The wine then ages on lees in 45 hl casks and 500 l barrels for 10 months.
Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé is a lively wine that retains the full freshness, energy and acidity of the freshest fruit. Juicy and refreshing Burgundy Chardonnay.
Tasting Notes :
Critic tasting note: (2013 vintage) "This is a ripe, beautifully structured wine. It has acidity and rich yellow and lime fruitiness that are touched by wood and channeled into a wine that is smooth and generous. The acidity keeps this balanced, structured wine on a straight line of pure fruitiness." - 90/100, Wine Enthusiast
