Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé 2020

The Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon Viré-Clessé is a new acquisition of Dominique Lafon’s, 7 hectares of vines from the Château de Viré. Only a small proportion of the fruit actually goes into this wine, the rest is declassified into Mâcon Villages. The vines are up to 75 years-old, and are a massale selection of the rare Muscat variety of Chardonnay. Sweetly-scented aromatic orchard fruit on the nose. At the opposite end of the spectrum to the stony Clos du Four, this is all about fruit rather than minerals. Wonderful golden delicious apple, mirabelle and peach flavours. Sunny and generous yet so clear and refined.

Delivery Times

We aim to to have your delivery with you within 5-7 working days of receiving your order, but often it can be much sooner. If you need your order by a certain date please get in touch and we'll do our best to get it to you as required.


Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
