ABOUT THE WINE
The estate was established in the mid-19th century by Monsieur Raymond-Lafon. At the turn of the century, Monsieur Louis Pontallier inherited the estate, and his family ensured its famed continuity. In 1972, Francine and Pierre Meslier acquired the Chateau. An agricultural engineer from Montpellier, Pierre Meslier was able to apply his considerable experience with Sauternes wines to the agricultural running of his vineyard as well as to the vinification and the maturing in barrel of the wines of Chateau Raymond-Lafon. As for Francine Meslier, a vital participant in the estate's history, she took over the day-to-day management of the chateau. Since 1990, their children Marie-Francoise, Charles-Henri, and Jean-Pierre have continued their parents' work.

TASTING NOTES
Unctuous, boasting bold candied orange and grapefruit peel flavors that lead the way for lush date, glazed pear, pie crust and honey notes. Long and sweet through the finish. Shows the tropical power of the vintage, but stays refined enough.

FOOD PAIRING
Almond desserts are perfect.
