    The grapes of Clos de la Crochette are usually the first to be picked on Lafon’s Mâconnais estate. The south- facing slope combined with the clay-limestone soil ripen the fruit to near perfection which gives this wine an enticing oyster-shell reduction reminiscent of a wine of Chablis. Beautifully scented with floral orchard fruit, one can easily pick up the notes of Williams pear, Cox apple and citrus on the nose. Bright and clear this seductive wine beckons you with a beautiful lemon-yellow hue from the moment you pour it into your glass. The substantial weight has a satiny texture and good concentration with a lively acidity throughout. The apple and herb flavors build on the palate as one enjoys the intense, long and gathered structure of this fine effort from Dominique Lafon.
