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

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. -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
