Château Lafon 2016: The nearest Sauternes to the great Château d’Yquem—literally: Case of 12 half bottles delivered
Metres from the world’s top Sauternes, Château d’Yquem, Château Lafon is in the best location in Sauternes. It is surrounded on all sides by Yquem vineyards and the wine is aged in Yqeum barrels. Served in the top Michelin Star restaurants, it has to be one of the most under priced wines in the world. This 2016 vintage is rich, with honey, crème caramel and luscious stone fruits, balanced by excellent acidity, with a long, elegant finish. Painstakingly made with up to six separate hand-harvests to select only the best noble rot affected grapes. Delicious to drink from release, it has the potential to age for a further five to 10 years. Perfect with blue cheese, and with foie gras, also delicious as an aperitif.
Case of 12 half bottles (75cl). Code LS16RW04. RRP £300. CCUK £159
