Raymond Lafon 2007
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.

Pale straw. Quite big and rich and massive. Pear juice and very intense. Very well done! Obviously lots of botrytis and almost but not quite over the top. Very clean and precise. Yes! Long.
