The Chateau Raymond-Lafon has a reticent nose at first that finds its voice after a few swirls of the glass, offering dried mango, almond and a touch of quince, all with fine delineation and intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity and tension, the minerality really coming through towards the beautifully composed finish. This is a very accomplished Raymond-Lafon that will repay cellaring. Score: 92-94 Neal Martin, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate

Deep gold. 'Let it warm a little bit because it's at 10 rather than 12 at the moment', say the Dourthe serving team. Lovely excitement on the nose. There is so much botrytis and richness here. Golden syrup and perhaps a tad lack of acidity. Round and gingery and lilies. Maybe very slightly over the top but no-one could accuse this of being too fresh and lean! Wonderful unctuousness - though taken to the limits of ripeness. As I say, I'd like just a little more acidity. Great richness on the nose. RS 139 g/l, TA 3.9.

The nose has lots of charm fragrant fresh fruits backed by rich ripe fleshy fruits. Apricot and peach intermingle with orange peel lovely lush layers of flavour. There is enough freshness to balance and to give a lighter more elegant feel to the finish. Score: 92-95 Derek Smedley MW, April 2011

Magnificent generous texture, more oakiness for the moment than in many other samples from neighbours, lots of potential, perfect botrytis character. An exemplary made wine - once again. Drink 2020-2040. Score: 17.5 Michel Bettane, Decanter.com, April 2011
