Château-Raymond-Lafon Sauternes 1989 375ml
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Sauternes|
Wine AdvocateThe 1989 exhibits aromas of honeyed pineapple/tropical fruit and toasty new oak, as well as an exotic, flashy perfume that is not as pronounced in either the 1990 or 1988. The 1989 exhibits less botrytis than the other two vintages. The wine possesses an opulent, full-bodied, exotic, lavishly rich personality, moderate sweetness, and huge quantity of extract, glycerin, and alcohol in its finish. The wine is also extremely young and unevolved. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025.
Wine SpectatorPretty floral, lilac and lemon flavors, turning a bit short on the finish.
