Château Raymond-Lafon is beautifully placed – the vineyards abut those of Château d’Yquem and their wines are often compared in quality, despite the disparity in price. The property was bought in 1972 by Pierre Meslier, then the manager of Yquem. He immediately duplicated the regime of Yquem at Raymond-Lafon and set about producing one of the great sweet wines of Bordeaux. This 2008 is a wine with racy acidity and crystaline intensity that cuts through the wine`s natural richness. The aromas combine white flowers, spiced apricot and peach, with sublime textures and a clean finish. Ready to drink, but will cellar well to 2020 and beyond.
