One of the Best Value Sweet Wines in the World

Chateau Lafon 2016 Pre Arrival

I just tried the new vintage of the Lafon Sauternes that is based in the enclave of d’Yquem. It is ridiculously good. Having received a sample the other day and sipping it put me into a trance I was enjoying it so much, but also in disbelief at the quality for this price. I had a flight to catch that I almost missed - I’ve never found it so hard to leave an open bottle. 


The last two vintages we’ve shipped have been wonderful with delightful Sauternes flavours, but this 2016 is something else. It has the viscosity of an altogether more serious Sauternes, with more botrytis. Of course it’s no d’Yquem (at 250 a half) but at 13.95 it’s truly, truly amazing. 
The Chateau does multiple pickings to achieve this incredibly high quality to get the best grapes. 
Sauternes when good are easily one of the greatest value wines in the world, but at this quality to price this surely must be one of the best value Sauternes on the market.
