Chateau Raymond-Lafon 2007
Chateau Raymond-Lafon – Sauternes
Bill Blatch: At first, I thought this was going to be a heavy wine, and now it has turned into a true class act of finesse and botrytis complexity. Of course very sweet, but lifted by a very pure, fine thread of delicious ultra-ripe but vivacious fruit that is quite unusual for this château’s wines at this stage. Tasted blind the other day, I didn’t recognise it, even debating with myself that it could possibly have come from across the valley to the East.
