The 2015 Raymond-Lafon has an attractive bouquet in the making: intense honey, acacia and white flower scents soaring from the glass. The palate is very well balanced and pure: mineral-tinged honeyed fruit, great tension with plenty of finesse on the finish. This is one of the best vintages that I have tasted in recent years.

Dark gold. Nose is rather restrained, but the palate is very classic and sinewy with edges reaching out to yeast extract and umami. Not just sweet but a very complex wine by any measure. Super-appetising. Very clean. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2045

Hints of cedar and white pepper along with fresh citrus and tropical fruit nuances. Vibrant acidity, long and very tactile. The 25% Sauvignon Blanc is than usual, but 98% of the berries were hit by noble rot. Despite this, it is incredibly fresh and light. Apr 2016, Ian D'Agata, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2020-2035

unusually high percentage of Sauvignon Blanc providing freshness in this heavily botrytised wine. Tangy, fresh and beautifully balanced with taut acidity and a hint of blackcurrant leaf complementing the melon and nectarine fruit. Exotic, yet refined. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2019-2032
