Heritiers du Comte Lafon Domaine des Macon Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette Wine 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This is considered to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, chardonnay growing site in the world. Located in the village where the Cluny monks first planted the varietal, this is the finest vineyard in the area. The perfect mix of clay and limestone combined with a medium steep slope and good eastern exposure, you can really feel the history here as you walk the vineyard. The resulting wine is very poised and possesses that perfect balance of crisp acidity, good mineral backbone and a very intense, long mouth-feel. The fruit shows both ripe apples and citrus with just a little spice.

As it usually is, this is notably more elegant with more obvious citrus influence to the nose that continues onto the attractively mineral-infused flavors that in addition to being a bit tighter are also more mineral-driven and drier.

Mild reduction cannot completely hide the floral and lemon peel nuances, the latter of which can also be found on the citrusy middle weight flavors that possess the fine detail and more obvious acid support on the mineral-driven finish.

A later malo is evident here as a lactic character presently dominates the nose. There is good concentration and solid intensity to the vibrant balanced and focused flavors that display fine depth and length. This can t match the excellent 08 version but it should offer 1 to 3 years of upside. Burghound.
