Wine Advocate 92 - The 2015 Macon Milly Lamartine Clos du Four has a very keen and precise bouquet, hints of yellow flower complementing the citrus fruit, direct and focused, perhaps more conservative than the domaine's other 2015s. The palate is crisp and fresh, more expressive than the regular Macon Milly Lamartine at the moment, with touches of orange zest and spice (ginger) on the finish. Dominique Lafon did not produce a better Mâconnais wine in this vintage--this is just a fabulous wine that is going to be difficult to resist in its youth. Drink: 2017-2026.
John Gilman 91+ - The Clos du Four is always the most powerful example in this fine lineup of Lafon Mâcon bottlings and the 2015 is no exception. The bouquet is deep, ripe and impressively pure, offering up scents of apple, tangerine, sweet nutty tones, a fine base of soil and a nice touch of Mâconnais toastiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, crisp and plump on the attack, with a fine core, bright acids and a long, complex and classy finish. This is very attractive this year and there is no need to defer gratification. 2016-2025.
Vinous 90 - Bright, light yellow. Tangy yellow stone fruit aromas convey an impression of lively acidity. Large-scaled, rich and thick, in a distinctly virile style, with penetrating acidity giving shape and verve to the flavors of apricot and smoke. 'Always our strongest wine in acidity,' noted Caroline Gon, adding that this wine always has the same aromas and technical analysis and thus transcends its vintage in 2015. Has the body to support its wood element finishes thick, bright and palate-staining. Drink: 2018-2024.
