Roulot’s Meursault, Leflaive’s Puligny: for generations wine lovers have obsessed over the nuances of the Cote d'Or different vineyards and villages. And for the last few years, the same has been true of Champagne. We think the Macon is next.

Why the Macon? Mostly because, as We've said before, it’s a region of exciting and diverse terroir. Although that wasn't clear back when production was dominated by large industrial concerns, now that some of the greatest white wine growers in the world are working there, everybody is catching on. It doesn't hurt that the wines are much more approach-ably priced.

No one has done more to put the spotlight on the Maconnais than the great Dominique Lafon. He established the domaine in 1999, and converted all of the vineyards to biodynamics over the next few years. Since 2006 his longtime apprentice Caroline Gon has been the head winemaker. She now has over a dozen vintages under her belt and the wines are better than ever.

Professional Reviews


BH 91
"There is ample citrus influence on the exuberantly fresh aromas just slice green apples and a hint of quinine character. The racy, intense and well-detailed flavors also exude a refreshing salinity on the bright, clean and very dry finish that is supported by lemon-tinged acidity. This is slightly firmer but should also drink well young." -Allen Meadows

Antonio Galloni

AG 90
"The 2020 Mâcon-Lilly-Lamartine was the last fruit to be picked in early September according to Dominique Lafon. It has a fresh, quite tensile bouquet with lemon curd and citrus peel, nicely defined and quite vigorous. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and is lightly spiced with a tangy and quite persistent finish. Excellent. Closure: Diam." -Vinous


D 93
"The fruit is lemony and bright, and the richness is balanced by a lively acidity, although there is still impressive breadth and density on the palate. This is produced from a number of parcels that total almost 5ha, all exposed to the east between Bussières and Sologny. The grapes are gently pressed and fermented in a combination of large oak foudres and neutral demi-muids, and thus receive no influence from new oak."
