CHATEAU RAYMOND LAFON

Raymond-Lafon is a young vineyard by Sauternes standards. It was founded in 1850 by Raymond Lafon and still bears his name. The, by then somewhat neglected, property was purchased in 1972 by Pierre Meslier, who was at the time the technical director of Château d’Yquem, so the potential outcomes were great.

This small property is located next door to the vineyards of d’Yquem (and very close to Suduiraut). Given the circumstances, it should come as no surprise that the wine is produced in the exact fashion used in that august location. The same blends are utilised at both properties as well. Today, the estate is managed by the three Meslier children.

The 18-hectare estate is planted in 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, with the vines that averaging 35 years of age. The wines are fresh, bright, sweet and lush.
