Chateau Raymond Lafon 2007
|Marque||Chateau Raymond Lafon|
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.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Rich but nicely focused, with bright tangerine, white peach and creamed melon notes and a long, golden raisin-tinged finish. Round and very flattering.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
