Château Raymond Lafon

Château Raymond-Lafon

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1995

1998 vintage. This estate was acquired in 1972 by former Château Yquem régisseur Pierre Meslier ( who passed away in 2023 at the age of 93). He managed to restore the wines to their former glory, and his 3 children seem to continue on the same path. This 1998 features a brilliant, golden colour, and a nose that immediately shows off the typical roasted botrytis aromas that characterise great Sauternes., intertwined with honey, beewax, maple syrup, lemon confit and flowers. In the mouth, it is succulent and profound, wonderfully achieving that delicate balance between sugar and acidity that makes Sauternes potentially great. Layers of dried and fresh fruit, rich and refreshing at the same time, culminating in a very long finish with a lovely almondy impression. Excellent. Abv. 13,5%. — 4 days ago

Domaine Raymond Usseglio & Fils

Cuvée Girard Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2018

I think I opened this too young? Was very closed all night, but then I tried it again 5 nights later and it felt like it was just coming down from peak. It had fruit and gentle tannin. — a month ago

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Clos du Four Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine Chardonnay 2020

Killer Macon Chardonnay. Tart green apple, wet rock, hint of lemon zest, used oak? Have had several bottles already. Will age well but can’t keep my hands off of it. Crisp acidity. Way over delivers for a Macon Chard. — 2 months ago

Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

2001 Lafon-Rochet
Saint Estephe

Inky black with cassis, black currant and blackberry. Black pepper and lavender with a whiff of smoke and graphite. Plum and vine charcoal give a softness to the tannin which is amazingly strong. Graphite shimmers through dark cocoa, cedar and pepper. Lovely and lively.

Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon

Mâcon-Milly-Lamartine Chardonnay 2020

Lovely Macon with serious more northern Bourgogne Blanc ambitions. Buttery lactic notes, ripe lemons, fresh acidity and mineral backbone; a well balanced wine nicely coming together at the moment. From magnum and paired with a dish of gray shrimps filled Jerusalem artichokes. — 2 months ago
