Lafon's lineup from the Macon sees the same organic and biodynamic viticulture approach as his Meursault vines. The distinction between the two in the cellar comes down to aging, with Macon's more luscious fruit finding the tension they need through aging in larger formats giving less oxygen exchange. Bottling also takes place well before the Meursault cuvées, again to preserve the snap and precision that works so well in this warmer, more southern appellation.

Lafon's entire lineup from the Macon is terrific and well worth your attention, but the 2020 Viré-Clessé is in a league of its own. The wine embodies Macon's ability to turn out razor-precise Chardonnay, still founded upon the same regal structure that makes Lafon's Meursault so enviable. Of course, with much more palatable pricing!
