Domaine Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon Macon-Uchizy 'Les Maranches' Blanc 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Maconnais|
|Brand||Domaine Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon|
This particularly stunning White Burgundy is a wonderful, single-vineyard Macon-Uchizy from arguably the top producer of Meursault, Domaine Comte Lafon. It is produced in the renowned Maconnais, Burgundy region, and is therefore a fraction of the price of Lafon’s prized Cote d’Or whites. This beauty is truly magnificent AND an amazing value!
"This 2019 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches wafts from the glass with wonderfully fresh aromas and great integrated fruit flavors of peach, citrus fruit, white flowers and pear. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's bright but gourmand, concluding with a long, layered, complex, dry finish."
“Blended from two parcels a bit lower on the slope, but still in sight of the Saône. This 2019 Mâcon-Uchizy Les Maranches is fermented in large oak casks (for very delicate oak influence) on native yeasts and delivers ripe apple fruit and a hint of spice, carrying lots of depth and complexity. Rich and approachable, this beauty is made for early enjoyment! Drink from 2022 – 2026.”
Ripe, this offers spice apple, melon and butterscotch flavors allied to a broad profile. It's fresh and harmonious, with a light tactile feel on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,500 cases made, 100 cases imported.
