Raymond-Lafon Sauternes 2003 Note moyenne : 93/100 Critiques : WA: 95/100 Cépages : Sémillon (~80%), sauvignon (~20%) There are 18 ha of vines situated in Sauternes commune, surrounded by so famous names like Lafaurie Peyraguey, d'Yquem and Suduiraut. Soil here is gravely on the surface and contains a mix of clay and limestones. The cépage is classic for Sauternes & Barsac – 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, vines are on average 35 years old, yield per ha is only 8.5 hl (!) and the wine matures in new barrels for 3 years. A perfect example, that Raymond Lafon aims more towards quality than quantity, is the fact that only grapes with sugar content corresponding to potential of 19-21% alcohol are harvested. Another sign of ruthless selection is, that 20-100% (!) of the harvest is declassified every year, according to the quality of the vintage. Raymond Lafon is close to d'Yquem concerning the style, and one of the most stable and demanded wines in the district. For me, Raymond Lafon is among the five best sweet wines in Bordeaux and represents an excellent value for the money. Zeer secure verzending!
