"Raymond-Lafon is a name to watch in the Sauternes district, particularly if one is looking for a wine that is close to the brilliance and majestic richness of Yquem for less than one-third the price. This small estate abuts Yquem's vineyard and has an excellent reputation. …Unfortunately, the wine is extremely difficult to find because of the tiny production (1,300 cases) and the fact that the proprietor Pierre Meslier sells much of it to private clients in Europe."

"Winery abutting d'Yquem. Underrated." Best 2009-2029

87 points "Ok but not great, oily and cloying, lacked the acidity to keep it lively and make it very good or great."
