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.

£355.25 / case

Wine Advocate – Score 92/100

International Wine Cellar – Score 90-93/100: Rather pale color. Pungent aromas.

Jancis Robinson – Score 17.5/20: Pale straw. Quite big and rich.
