Looking Back: 2007 Sauternes (Oct 2022)

The 2007 Raymond-Lafon was tasted from two bottles. The second is slightly better with dried honey, a touch of petrol, saffron and yellow flowers on the nose with a hint of orange zest emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, smooth in texture with orange rind, marmalade and touches of allspice. Moderate length. This is probably at its peak. Tasted at the 2007 horizontal in Sauternes.
