89 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2019 Mâcon-Villages from Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon is a nicely ripe and expressive wine that shows plenty of aromatic personality as it wafts from the glass in a pretty mix of nectarine, clementine, pretty nuttiness, a sound base of soil and a topnote of musky floral tones. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and succulent at the core, with just a wisp of CO2, sound acids and good length and grip on the wide open and inviting finish. This is a very nicely done, and though there is a touch of pinching on the backend from the closure, I am sure that this wine will have all been drunk up long before any reduction comes into play. 2020-2025. (Jul/Aug 2020)"

Importer notes: "Mâcon Villages is issued from two plots (total 1.8ha) of clay and chalk located in the towns of Uchizy and Chardonnay. The vineyard is turned towards the South and is about twenty years old. The parcels are cultivated following organic and biodynamic methods. The Mâcon Villages is aged in 'vieux foudres' (wood barrels containing 53 hl) and kept on yeasts for seven or eight month before being racked and prepared for bottling which is done in July and August."
