Wine Advocate 93 points - Tasted single blind against its peers. It never ceases to amaze me just how well Raymond-Lafon performs year after year. The 2007 has an elegant bouquet with touches of tangerine and dried honey, the underlying minerality beginning to show through with further aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry, good acidity with a very taut finish that will need time to express itself. This remains one of the best value wines of the vintage. Tasted January 2011.

Tasted single blind against its peers. It never ceases to amaze me just how well Raymond-Lafon performs year after year.

Producer
The Sauternes appellation comprises nearly 2,000 hectares (about 4,900 acres) of vines that grow from a gravely soil with a clay and limestone substratum. The maximum authorized output is 25 hectolitres per hectare. The estate is made up of 18 ”appellation” hectares (44 acres), sixteen of which are under cultivation. The majority of the plots are grouped around the chateau itself, in the small administrative municipalities of Sauternes, Bommes, and Preignac. Surrounded by the most renowned Sauternes vineyards, our vineyard enjoys an ideal location and combines the best conditions to produce a great Sauternes. The estate was established in the mid-19th century by Monsieur Raymond-Lafon. Although Chateau Raymond-Lafon was not able to be distinguished by the 1855 classification ( at the time, Chateau Raymond-Lafon was only five years old). It has always been recognized as on greatest wines of its appellation. At the turn of the century, Monsieur Louis Pontallier inherited the estate, and his family ensured its famed continuity. In 1972, Francine and Pierre Meslier acquired the Chateau. An agricultural engineer from Montpellier, Pierre Meslier was able to apply his considerable experience with Sauternes wines to the agricultural running of his vineyard as well as to the vinification and the maturing in barrel of the wines of Chateau Raymond-Lafon. As for Francine Meslier, a vital participant in the estate’s history, she took over the day-to-day management of the chateau. Since 1990, their children Marie-Francoise, Charles-Henri, and Jean-Pierre have continued their parents’ work.
