1983 Raymond Lafon, Sauternes

SKU #970019 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 This is a magnificent wine. Light golden, with a wonderfully pure tropical fruit aroma of ripe pineapples and melons, this decadently rich, full-bodied wine has layers of viscous, sweet fruit, an astonishing finish, and excellent balancing acidity. The wine remains stubbornly slow to evolve. Anticipated maturity: Now-2020. (RP)  (1/1998)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Extremely harmonious, so complex it keeps you going back for another sip in a vain attempt to pick out the fruit flavors. Medium gold, unabashedly lush and ripe, with complex sweet fruit, oak and tobacco. The finish echoes forever.  (1/1988)

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
