2019 Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon Pouilly-Fuisse En Chatenay

Burgundy, FRANCE
$110. 00 Bottle
$1320.00 Dozen
ABV: 14%
Closure: Cork

When legendary Meursault winemaker Dominique Lafon wanted to expand his offerings he looked to the picturesque southern Burgundy region of the Maconnais. Knowing there was immense potential in the area, he found a suitable domaine in Milly Lamartine and renamed it Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. As is the Lafon way, he immediately converted to organic and now to biodynamic farming. Wanting to preserve the fruit and minerality of the region, only larger, neutral wood or stainless steel is used for vinification and ageing of the wines.

The lieu dit of En Chatenay is situated in Vergisson, the finest village for Pouilly-Fuisse, on the Prisse border.

Other Reviews....
Hints of fresh bread, almond paste and mint complement scents of crisp yellow orchard fruit, introducing the 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé En Chatenay, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered wine that's enveloping and complete, with succulent acids and a saline finish. This is a fine performance from this north-facing site.
