93 Points Robert Parker
The 2009 Raymond-Lafon exhibits a little more oak on the nose compared to its peers, which tends to obscure the fruit aromatics at the moment. The palate is much better with a crisp, taut entry and a superb seam of acidity that runs from start to finish. There is a sense of conservatism here, almost a predictable 2009 Sauternes, although it is very well crafted and offers great clarity and freshness on the tropical fruit-tinged finish. This is lovely, but give it a couple of years for the aromatics to settle. Drink 2015-2030.
