(these vines range in age from 4 to 80 years old: Lafon has seven hectares and selects the best three or four for this cuvée, with the idea of making a fresh, dry wine; aged mostly in demi-muids): Bright yellow. Elegant nose combines aromas of vineyard peach, flowers, minerals and curry (the latter a "marker" of the vintage in the Mâconnais, according to Caroline Gon), lifted by spicy oak notes of clove and nutmeg. Very rich and concentrated, with yellow peach and mineral flavors and a very firm, long finish. The crop level in 2015 was about 30 hectoliters per hectare, which Gon told me is a lot better than the 10 to 15 they got when the team started working these vineyards in 2009.
