The Raymond-Lafon 2010 has a complex bouquet with lemon peel, almond and quince aromas, and is well-defined with an impressive sense of energy. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening, and well-judged acidity. It builds toward a rounded, pineapple and marmalade- tinged finish. This has good weight and presence with plenty of strikingly fresh acidity to keep everything balanced. This wine deserves a round of applause. - NEAL MARTIN

Both freshness and richness are well combined in this elegant Sauternes. What it misses in weight, it gains in honey and apricot flavors. (WE91-89)

80% semillon 20% sauvignon blanc. Aged in 100% new oak. Crème citrus notes fill the nose framed by toasted coconut and a touch of butter. Those aromas are mirrored on the palate along with notes of clove. This... 80% semillon 20% sauvignon blanc. Aged in 100% new oak. Crème citrus notes fill the nose framed by toasted coconut and a touch of butter. Those aromas are mirrored on the palate along with notes of clove. This fat style is a little lower in acids allowing for opulent texture but the fat slightly sweet impression is not too over the top with botrytis coming through on the finish. Will drink well upon release and for the next 25 or so thereafter.

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. RS 139 g/l TA 3.9. 17 out of 20
