Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé is a biodynamic, barrel-aged white wine made by Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon in Burgundy (France) with the Chardonnay variety.

Following in the footsteps of her father, Dominique Lafon founded Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon in 1999 at a time when Mâcon wines, from southern Burgundy, were known for their high volume production. But through this winemaker’s hard work, both in the vineyard and in the winery, she has managed to change the area’s reputation and her wines have gained the international recognition they deserve.

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé comes from 6 hectares planted between 1950 and 1990. These vines lie 200 metres above sea level and are planted on clay and calcareous soil. The team works with organic agriculture, using biodynamic treatments, and before the grape reaches optimum ripeness, it is harvested manually.

Once the Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé grapes have been selected, they are pressed and begin fermentation at a low temperature with native yeasts. The wine then ages on lees in 45 hl casks and 500 l barrels for 10 months.

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé is a lively wine that retains the full freshness, energy and acidity of the freshest fruit. Juicy and refreshing Burgundy Chardonnay.

People couldn’t understand why Dominique Lafon, a prestigious Burgundy winemaker, decided to buy land in the Mâconnais area, which has been traditionally associated with high volume. Dominique decided to try and capture the area’s diversity: land with predominantly calcareous soils, middle-aged vines with low yields and the practice of biodynamic agriculture. And, sure enough, it turned out to be well worth his time. The results are crystal-clear wines that are balanced with a subtle mineral elegance. Unique Chardonnays.
