TN: 2014 Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé

This is becoming a favorite play for me for a an everyday white Burgundy that won't break the bank. Much pleasure here.
  • 2014 Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé - France, Burgundy, Mâconnais, Viré-Clessé (1/6/2019)
    Continues to be a top buy for me, and '14 is just singing. Beautiful floral nose, some simmering stock and tropical fruit. Even a bit more depth from last bottle back in the spring. It's cool and crisp, a zippy acidity braces the white fruit richness. Lively. Worth every bit of the $30ish price tag and a real value in this range. Just pop and enjoy, don't overthink this one.

Depends on how much he has. You might get some. This is the 2nd or 3rd offer from Greg, so there could be a decent amount.

I couldn't agree more with your notes Dennis. This is an incredible wine that's just drinking perfectly right now; I do think Denver is all out now though :(

I like their 2014 Mâcon-Chardonnay Clos de la Crochette a lot as well, great value for money.
