Merci Dominique! Lovely and crisp Macon. Perfect bottle with a delicious lunch in NH.

Wanted to drink this after listening to Dominique’s IDTT interview. Found the best nationally priced bottle in Pasadena and it showed really nicely, particularly after being open for something like 4 hours. I like his winemaking approach here, which doesn’t seem to be about elevating it beyond its provenance. It’s a delicious, mineral wine that would crush with shellfish and was lovely in the afternoon along with The Trip to Spain.

This is a classy white burgundy style that is everything I wish some of the California chardonnays would be. Complex without being too fussy and great acidity that you don't see in chards anymore.

If this is any indication, the 2014 Burgundies might be something to stock up. Better than the 2013 release.

The fruit shows ripe, both aromatically and on the palate. Big notes of Granny Smith & Green melon accent the elegant acidic structure & it shows additional vibrancy & vitality as it opens up. Absolutely adore these bottlings from Lafon.

Delicious white burgundy! Golden apple, pear, popcorn and a gorgeous, linear acidity and minerality. Perfectly balanced and refreshing.
