This is a real treat and a bargain to boot, as a portion of the vineyard is literally surrounded by the fabled Chateau d’Yquem, which sells for hundreds of pounds. Nearly half the output of the 2016 vintage was lost to frost in the Spring, which has added to the concentration of this vintage. The wine is aged 12 months in oak barrels handed down from d’Yquem.

The wonderfully sticky texture and sweet unctuousness of Sauternes is caused by “Noble Rot”, which is a fungus that attacks the grapes just before harvest. Chateau Lafon is elegant and not overpoweringly sweet – the perfect partner for your dessert course or a rich Christmas fruitcake. A half bottle is ideal for between four to six people. Due to its limited availability, the Château Lafon will only be available in a case of six half bottles.

Please order by 18 December 2018 to ensure Christmas delivery.
