Description
 
Dominique Lafon had been eyeing land and property in the Maconnais for some time before he eventually bought some cellars and vineyards around the village of Milly. Here he recognised an opportunity to produce some very good yet very well-priced wines which is exactly what he has achieved. These are intense, complex examples of Mâcon, aged in a mixture of steel tanks, wooden foudres, and demi-muid oak casks. The flavours are intense but there is great finesse here, too. Fine vibrant flavours of juicy peaches and citrus fruits, gently mineral with a twist of nectarine stone, limestone and minerals. This is so well balanced, there is not a hair out of place, and is so long and breathtakingly elegant. From the rocky, shallow soils of the Clos du Four vineyard in Milly.

The 2018 Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine offers up a pretty bouquet of peaches, white flowers and nougat, followed by a medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy palate that's underpinned by a racy, even bracing, spine of acidity. While its generous fruit tones are faithful to the vintage, its tangy profile certainly defies any stereotypes of heaviness. Wine Advocate 89
