Bright golden yellow. Captivating aromas of fresh white flowers acacia honey guava and marmaladey botrytis. Smooth and seamless in the mouth displaying knockout flavors of pineapple pomelo (rather than grapefruit which has an element of bitterness that is absent in this wine) English custard and honeyed mango. The finish is extremely long very sweet and dense but this come across as a politely styled very refined version of Raymond-Lafon owing to its harmonious acidity. This outstanding wine is the result of six different tries occurring between September 19 and October 5 but only the middle four went into the grand vin with the first and last pickings used for the estate s second wine. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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.

Stands out in this crowd because of its stylish lilac violet floral rose petal scents that delight from start to finish medium-to-full body and sweetness plus a long finish. Better in 1998. Wine Spectator.
