    (Château Raymond-Lafon (Sauternes)) A vintage rich in botrytis at Raymond-Lafon, says Jean-Pierre Meslier; the wines took a long time to settle after bottling. I find a honeyed nose, with a quartzy element to it, deep and complex, minerally and fine, with a little note of matchsticky reduction to it as well. A very harmonious start on the palate, rich and broad, and there is a great energy coming through here. And behind it an intense botrytis character also, sweet and with a finely bitter structure. On the finish it has a really bright, tingling, minerally energy. This is very impressive and it transcends my otherwise rather uninspired view of this variable vintage. Aromatically a very exciting wine, and it is all there on the palate too, with a citrus lift alongside these complexities. For the vintage, a brilliant effort.
