Established in the 1860s, Château Raymond-Lafon was resurrected in 1972 by Pierre Meslier - the man best known for being the technical director of Château d’Yquem from 1963 to 1989. In terms of Bordeaux wines that are underpriced, this Estate heads the small queue.
Very backward, with dried apricot, ginger, peach and guava notes held in check by singed almond and hazelnut husk notes. There's lots of spice and energy in reserve though, so the pieces are in place. Really solid. Rating: 93-96 Points; James Molesworth; Wine Spectator
Tasted five times - last time in April 2018. Consistent notes. Very elegant wine with much finesse, rich, excellent acidity, exquisite balance, great complexity and honeyed finish. It looks like this wine is getting better and better each time I taste it! Yep, it was simply excellent in April 2018! Rating: 95 Points; Great Bordeaux Wines
I just love young Sauternes. This was no exception, with its blast of juicy, ripe, and overripe pineapple, apricot, vanilla bean, spring flowers and honey, everything seemed good to go. On the palate, things got even better as the play between sweet, ripe, tropical fruits, coated in honey, and bracing acidity kept everything balanced, on a high note. Elegance, sweetness, intensity of flavor and lift, that's a blend I can get behind. Rating: 93 Points; Jeff Leve; Wine Cellar Insider
Pure and focused with balanced sweetness. Good density as well as lifted acidity with layers of dried mangos and pineapples. A mineral, almost salty finish. Drinking Window 2019 - 2025; Rating: 18.0/20.0; Jeannie Cho Lee MW; Decanter
