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 2015 Macon Milly Lamartine Clos du Four has a very keen and precise bouquet, hints of yellow flower complementing the citrus fruit, direct and focused, perhaps more conservative than the domaine's other 2015s. The palate is crisp and fresh, more expressive than the regular Macon Milly Lamartine at the moment, with touches of orange zest and spice (ginger) on the finish. Dominique Lafon did not produce a better Mâconnais wine in this vintage—this is just a fabulous wine that is going to be difficult to resist in its youth. Wine Advocate 92 (2015)
