2018 Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon Vire-Clesse #152004543
Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "The 2018 Vire-Clesse opens in the glass with notes of citrus oil, fresh peach, blanched almonds and hints of orange blossom. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's fleshy and layered, with a bright spine of acidity and a pretty core of fruit.

About Les Heritiers du Comte Lafon
When Dominique took over in 1984, the vineyard holdings were spread across Meursault, Volnay, Monthélie, and Puligny-Montrachet, with most under contract. But once those agreements expired, this tour de force got to work. He took complete control back of the vineyards, implemented organic and biodynamic practices, and built a respected reputation for honoring the terroir of each vineyard. Best known for his whites, these wines range from round and seductive to robust and serious, to a signature finesse in his Montrachet Grand Cru.
Ever since Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate declared, “Dominique Lafon is on fire, in a zone, on top of his game. He’s never made better wines, and he improves with each passing vintage,” collectors worldwide have been jumping at the opportunity to acquire these prized bottlings.
