  • What the experts say...

    "The 2006 Raymond Lafon felt rather reduced on the nose, quite resinous in style and lacking a sense of joie de vivre. The palate is better with honeyed, lightly spiced fruit merging with apricot jam and quince towards the finish, which just needs to show more tension and precision." N. Martin (05/2016)

    Cuvée presentation

    This luscious, almost syrupy dessert wine is powerful, very rich and complex. A very fine wine.
